HOPE Cape Town Distributes Rain Jackets

Written by:

HOPE Cape Town recently donated over 1700 rain jackets to school children at various sites throughout the Western Cape.

Mr Fahim Docrat, HOPE Cape Town Donor Relations Manager, said, “We took great pleasure in spreading some warmth to those in need, and focussed on schools and sites where we have our programmes and outreach which included Sir Lowry’s Pass Primary School, Klipheuwel Primary School, Tygerberg Hospital, Delft Clinic and Blikkiesdorp.”

Docrat continued, “We are thankful to our donors who have made this possible and urge other donors to come on board and support our efforts as there is still much work to be done. While our focus is addressing HIV/Aids and TB and its impact on communities, we cannot ignore the realities and broader socio-economic challenges that these communities face. As South Africans we should all be very concerned about the ever-increasing gap between the rich and the poor and the consequences for society at large.”

HOPE Cape Town located at the Medical School of the University of Stellenbosch – Tygerberg Campus is a non-profit organization providing outreach, education and counselling at community level, focusing on HIV/AIDS and TB in the Western Cape.

HOPE Cape Town is linked to the University of Stellenbosch and cooperates with the department of Paediatrics and “KID-CRU”, the Tygerberg Hospital research unit for paediatric infectious diseases.

HOPE Cape Town began their work in 2001 with its mission to impact the communities they work in and have been very successful to date. Having expanded their services to address the increasing need they are now more reliant on the generosity of business and individuals to help fund their programmes.
