Takathemba (“Happiness and Hope” in Zulu) supports the Project “Yumelela”. Since 2012 the AIDS orphans from the surrounding villages have been receiving a warm meal daily as well as a place to stay. We don’t only help AIDS orphans but also “Social Orphans” whose parents have left the villages to seek work in faraway cities. These parents promise financial support but this never happens. Nobody seems to be responsible for these children. Of course circumstances like these leaves them traumatized.
“Yumelela” offers the AIDS Orphans “Trauma Counselling”. The children are encouraged to create “Memory Boxes” which are filled with “memories” of their parents; jewellery, a scarf, a favourite piece of clothing, a letter etc These are a great comfort in times of deep sadness.
Soon (January, 2019) the new school year will start. We have 80 children who need school books. The older children need financial support to do an apprenticeship which helps in finding a job.
