The ME CFS Foundation South Africa

Clarinda Viviers

Clarinda always had an interest in the medical field and all she ever wanted was to be a medical doctor. However, during her Grade 11 year she contracted a virus resulting in Viral Myocarditis and had to leave school. She completed her matric via home-school.

Clarinda then went on and did 2 years of training as a Paramedic. Her passion is to work in the medical field and she adds great value to the Foundation.

Clarinda co-founded THE ME CFS FOUNDATION SOUTH AFRICA NPO early 2016.
