Cape Town- We often complain about challenges we face as a nation, doing little to create opportunity for change. Truth is we must be the change we want to see in our beautiful country. Change starts with us! LIPCO Law for All in association with Maboneng Township Experience, launched five Mediation Hubs in Gugulethu. Said former Justice of the Constitutional Court of South Africa and robust advocate of mediation, Albie Sachs at the launch of the Mediation Hubs: “The potential for mediation in our country is enormous. To have it community-based gives the concept legitimacy and efficiency. Undoubtedly mediation, dialogue, consensus-seeking are deep in the African cultural tradition. The objective is not to decide on winners and losers so that they remain enemies, but to get people to dispute themselves to find the most balanced solution, and end up respecting each other in the community.” Sachs strongly believes this initiative could serve as a pilot project for use throughout the country. During 2015 residents of a small street in Gugulethu, informally known as Peace Street, have undergone professional training and have been accredited through LIPCO Law for All’s innovative mediation programme. Their homes have been converted into conflict resolution spaces to serve those who cannot otherwise access justice, giving them the ability to navigate through problems in their own community and beyond. These Mediation Hubs will furthermore exhibit artistic content that will encourage dialogue and learning about the law. LIPCO Law for All has been working for over 23 years to provide sustainable solutions that make the law more affordable and accessible. According to Managing Director, Advocate Jackie Nagtegaal more has to be done to tackle the challenges we face: “South Africans simply cannot deal with the enormous difficulties they face without access to the legal justice system and increasingly resort to mob justice to deal with conflict.

Where Rainbows Meet Training and Development Foundation Tel: +27 21 701 0328 www.WhereRainbowsMeet.org PRESS RELEASE 13 NOVEMBER 2015 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Help Give 5,000+ Children A Christmas This Year Vrygrond, Cape Town, South Africa November 11, 2015-Where Rainbows Meet, a constructive non-profit organisation in Vrygrond Cape Town, South Africa has started a crowdfunding campaign through Jumpstarter South Africa to help the impoverished children of the community this Christmas. Starting this November, the locally founded non-profit organisation Where Rainbows Meet has begun its Adopt a Child for Christmas Campaign, focusing on providing some of the world’s most victimized children with a real Christmas. The organisation would like to raise over ZAR 15,000.00 to fund the campaign this Christmas season. This event not only provides basic necessities to the children of the community, but also shows them that they are not forgotten, unloved, or condemned to a life of poverty. More than often, children in the community face abuse and neglect from their parents and extreme violence into their adult years. The campaign was first attempted in 2014 and was a resounding success with the project raising over ZAR 100,000.00, over 10 times the fundraising goal of ZAR 10,000.00. This success allowed the organization to provide not only food, clothes, and medicine to over 2,500 children, but also toys, hygiene materials, education materials, and even a safe and fun community event for the people to enjoy. This year, Where Rainbows Meet hopes to surpass last year with a bigger impact through this campaign in order to give back to its community in a unique fashion. The very active nature of the organization paired with its very real presence in the hearts and minds of the local community means that every donation will make a real difference in the lives of these children and will not be just another drop in the bucket. “I’m really excited to be part . . .

“Key objective to become a strategic partner to the South African Navy” “Maritime Africa is a fantastic opportunity for Denel to launch our maritime division in public and articulate our aspirations within the sector” says Ismail Dockrat, Chief Executive Officer, Denel Integrated Systems & Maritime. He is a speaker at the upcoming Maritime Africa conference and exhibition, taking place at the CTICC in Cape Town from 23-24 November, and will focus on the growth of a safe, secure and sustainable African maritime domain. The event will bring together African leaders and global experts from the military, government, defence industry, law enforcement, marine manufacture and maintenance, commercial shipping and offshore extractive industries to share knowledge, experience and best practice. Denel is a gold sponsor at the event. Just under a year ago, Denel established the new division of Denel Integrated Systems & Maritime (Denel ISM) and, says the CEO, “this new division is meant to diversify Denel into a range of new capabilities and new markets, one of which is the maritime market.” He continues: “the other two markets under Denel ISM are sovereign technologies and national safety and security. In terms of sovereign technologies, we are responsible for areas such as command and control, electronic warfare, secure communications and integrated systems. In the safety and security space, we are engaging with clients such as the South African Police Services (SAPS), the Airports Company of South Africa (ACSA), the Border Management Agency (BMA) and the National Disaster Management Centre (NDMC). We are developing our value proposition within these important markets.” Strategic partner to the Navy With regard to the maritime sector in particular, Mr Dockrat says, “it is striking that Denel has not had the same relationship with the SA Navy (SAN) as it has historically had with the SA Air Force (SAAF) and the SA Army.

Cape Medical Aesthetics Centre – “CapeMAC” based in Plattekloof, Cape Town now offers a non-surgical facelift treatment using SILHOUETTE SOFT® skin sutures/threads. The treatment is designed especially for patients unhappy about facial aging, but who do not want to undergo major surgery. The number of people demanding less invasive cosmetic procedures has increased substantially around the world, and South Africa is no different. The SILHOUETTE SOFT® suture/thread lift was recently launched in South Africa by Genop Healthcare and now complements the comprehensive range of non-invasive or minimally invasive medical aesthetics skin, body, hair and face treatment options available for patients at CapeMAC. The minimally invasive procedure, often referred to as “the non-surgical facelift”, is a good option for patients who do not want to undergo traditional facelift surgery, but who still wish to give their face a ”lift” by tightening up those drooping cheeks, eyebrows, neck and other areas of the body thereby achieving a more younger and fresher appearance. The procedure can also help younger men and women to slow down the effects of skin aging. “The new SILHOUETTE SOFT® anti-ageing skin sutures have special anchoring points along their course, which are inserted just under the skin to re-suspend and elevate the soft tissues;” explains Dr Manoj Bagwandeen, Managing Director and Principal Medical Aesthetics Practitioner at the Centre. “The procedure is less invasive; less time-consuming; more cost-effective and offers a quicker recovery period for patients than a traditional facelift. It also does not require major anaesthesia or any hospital stay.” Dr Bagwandeen further explains that the procedure can take as little as 30/45 minutes, with patients being able to return home a short while thereafter, with a refreshed and rejuvenated look. Patients at CapeMAC can choose to have the thread lift treatment performed either as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction . . .
