Profile Info
Monica Gerhard is the feisty lady who presents a 30 minutes slot on Tuesdays during the Prontuit program from 12:00 to 12:30 highlighting issues of people living with disabilities. Monica has been with the station from 2005 and says that her disability has never stood in her way and she is living a fulfilled life despite having lost her limbs and feet in a car accident when she was young.

Monica is an inspiring activist who was at one stage a provincial organizer for APD (Association for People with Disabilities). Being in the company of Monica you can only learn a lot from her and her outlook on life. She says she wants to see a South Africa that is better accessible for the disabled people and that together with government and other civil society organizations this place will ultimately better accommodate the needs of disability people, whether it is how buildings are built, how roads are constructed to how disabled students are accommodated at schools and tertiary education.
