WHY Dr T LEKHANYA WANTS TO HELP PEOPLE

Twenty-first Century life, though seemingly glamorous, is hard. And it is getting harder for the majority of the world’s inhabitants.

More than half the world’s population is experiencing two pandemics with onset within 40 years of each other. This double attack by viruses is unprecedented.

The world’s economy is not stabilising. The Climate Chaos (often called “Climate Change”) that began at the close of the past century, continues unabated. And it brings about a lot of destruction, which hits the weakest members of society the most.

The unfolding COVID-19 Pandemic has reawoken the Human Race to the fact that all of us, need all of us.

Dr T Lekhanya would like to reach out to the Global Community with his preventive and promotive work. Importantly, I aim to provide information and solutions to you personally, Dear Reader. I wish to lend a hand in alleviating suffering, not only of humans, but of all forms of life on Earth.

THE GOAL OF THE SITE

The goal of the site is to provide, at the fingertips, information for people around the globe. This help is available 24/7, at high speed, in order to enable Visitors to tackle Health and Wellbeing issues.

The backbone of the website is a proactive approach, EDUCATING one and all in the global community, and providing answers for some of the most pressing questions.

Interaction / discussion is strongly encouraged. But this should be cordial and respectful, not only towards the site’s host(s), but to other Site Users as well.

Thanks for visiting this my website and all the best! 🤗

  1. Hello Dr Teboho, thanks for the very clean and well structured article. There are two kids in my house who want to be doctors too and when you ask them why they want to take up such a career, they say they don’t want to see mummy sick and I just smile. It’s really nice now you’ve willed your time out to wanting to help others and I really like it. Nice story

      My very best wishes to the kids. But I encourage them to make as much effort possible as they grow up, to chat with Doctors and other Healthcare professionals, so they can get a deep understanding of the opportunities and joys of the profession, but also the evolving challenges.
