The Blue Roof Wellness Center is situated in Durban, South Africa. In partnership with the Stephen Lewis Foundation, and under the leadership of the wonderful Clinic Manager Tessa, this clinic has thrived during the last 9 months, doubling its reach to 2,700 clients. The Blue Roof supports children and families living with HIV by providing compassionate, quality care and other services such as cervical cancer screening, and nutritional and psychosocial support.
There are many reasons why the Blue Roof is special, but one in particular is the staff - many of which were former clients at the clinic. Their passion and dedication is immeasurable. This in itself is a testament to the success of services here, as well as the loving environment, which encourages clients to live full and healthy lives.
The Blue Roof also promotes linkages with local social service organizations, which helps to de-stigmatize the clinic. One such organization, the Molibongwe Senior Citizens Club, is a support group for elderly women, some of whom are raising their orphaned grandchildren. They come together to make beads, crafts, and even organize soccer games. They follow the South African Soccer team and have all become fitter because of it.
The Blue Roof is a model clinic and one that can be replicated in other communities. The Blue Roof staff are super special individuals, who continue to make a real difference in the lives of the people they serve.
These sub-zero temperatures call for a little sub-Saharan sunshine. Wrap yourself up this winter and choose from one of six trendy styles of fabric. Hand-crafted by the women of the Tweyambe Group in Uganda, these wraps can be worn in any number of ways.
The Tweyambe Group is a women’s collective in Uganda, which is an income generating initiative empowering mothers, sisters, and friends living with, and affected by, HIV.
$30 means financial independence and continued HIV care for these women.
Already warm enough? This fabric can be used as a tablecloth, tapestry, runner, or throw. Know that whatever you decide to do with it, you are supporting the families that we serve.
On 22 December 2012, Lynne Macgregor swam the 7.5 km between Robben Island and Blouberg, South Africa, braving shark infested waters and cold temperatures.
Lynne raised $4,085, which will fund comprehensive HIV treatment and care programs for our brothers and sisters in Africa and India.
