What You Can Do

Ukuthemba is a Xhosa word which means to believe, trust and hope. It is one of those words that is not easy to define because it represents the essence of all that we cherish in humanity, in the absence of which we find heartbreak and despair.

Donations

Fifteen years ago a tiny, abandoned child with HIV came into our lives. Today he is a well-adjusted young man approaching his final years at school.
