Listen to the entire show
Welcome to the Radio Workshop podcast!
Today we’ll be hearing from some of our radio reporters from the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital in Cape Town. We’ve been working with a group of young people from Red Cross since January. We’ve taught them how to use recorders and microphones, and how to tell their own stories for radio.
Our stories this week come from Red Cross patients who live in St. Joseph’s Home, a home for children who need extra help to deal with their illnesses. St. Joseph’s is just outside of Cape Town and it was started way back in 1935. Take a listen!
