The South African population living with HIV. This is among the highest infection rates in the world.
The HIV prevalence rate among pregnant women in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
AIDS-related deaths in South Africa. On average, that’s 600 people dying from AIDS each day.
South African babies born HIV positive. That’s about 250 babies a day.
In wake of these statistics, there will be thousands of orphaned children in the years to come in our service area. The need is there, and unfortunately, grows every day.
We exist for one reason: to provide a loving residential environment that serves the emotional, physical, and developmental needs of orphaned, abandoned and disadvantaged children in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
