Meet our team
My name is Noluthando Shabi and I work as the Administrative Assistant for Surgeons for Little Lives.
I act as a point of initial contact for Surgeons for Little Lives, receive and respond to and appropriately assign all queries from email, telephone and social media. I handle the general management of the office including daily administrative issues. I also coordinate volunteers to their respective volunteering programs. I also attend to anything at hand that needs my intervention, for example; we have recently hosted a camp with the Just Footprints Foundation. I helped the camp director organise and coordinate campers, camp crew members and all the necessary logistics. I have also just started doing social media for SFLL together with Renee Schornborn and Adele Wapnick. This has been a great opportunity for me to learn something different and to broaden my expertise.
I’ve been working for SFLL for 2years 5 months now, basically the first SFLL’s employee and now we have grown.
I have my parents and grandmother who raised me and whom I adore so much. I live with my husband. My husband is my support structure, the best I could ever ask for. He’s always been there for me from the beginning of my career journey, supporting and pushing me to do my absolute best. Because of him I know I am not limited, that I can push through and be the best version of myself!! What I love about my job is the variety - my employers do not limit me, they let me do everything possible for this organisation, which allows me to learn and grow in my career path. What is most difficult about my job, is seeing the helpless little patients entering our Hospital who need our help - but I am glad that we do all that is possible to help them.
My wish for SA is to see the youth unemployment rate go down. It’s so sad to see my fellow young South Africans jobless and unable to take care of themselves and their families!
