Dr Sindi | A True Definition of Ubuntu

Dr Sindi Van Zyl

Below is a screenshot of a conversation shared by Ausi Dineo which she had with the late Dr Sindi Van Zyl. The conversation is both heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.

It is clear that even when faced with imminent death and seeing the shadow of Hades, Dr Sindi was at peace with what she was going through.

She had been battling COVID19 related complications for weeks hospital and endured the rough journey until all the elements of life gradually disintegrated.

It might be difficult for us to comprehend why Dr Sindi was at peace with her death at 45 years old. Naturally, this is the period when life begins to take shape, when most of us escape the superficial world and adopt post materialism attitudes.

Dr Sindi accepted that her death was part of God’s plan and that must be a big lesson to most of us in remembering her selfless work as a life coach.

She demystified mental HIV and AIDS related mental health issues in the age where South Africa has the highest number of people living with HIV in the world. With that said, you can only imagine the impact she had in peoples lives across the African continent.

Africans must also be applauded for the love and support they have shown for raising over R1 million for Dr Sindi’s medical bills and that culture must carry on regardless of a person’s status in society.

Dr Sindi van Zyl is the definition of Ubuntu.
