 The 11th HOPE Gala Dresden will take place on 12 November 2016. We are looking forward to another successful event organised by Viola Klein.

Please visit www.hopegala.de to buy your ticket and support HOPE Cape Town.


2. Blikkiesdorp Project

 After a long period of addressing issues of crime and vandalism at our Community Project in Blikkiesdorp, sponsored by HOPE & Future e. V., we are able to continue to thrive and serve the local community providing critical interventions, social and health services. With the help of HOPE & Future e. V., Builders Warehouse and other friends and supporters we could equip the project and can continue to support the residents in Blikkiesdorp. We thank our donor, Hope & Future, for their ongoing commitment.


3. HOPE to Home

 Our project “HOPE to Home” sponsored by BILD “Ein Herz für Kinder” continues to grow as one of our major projects.

Retaining patients in care in the community, after being discharged from hospital, remains a challenge and initial integration of patients into their community health care facilities plays a major role in this retention. Hope Cape Town facilitates the smooth transition between admission and reporting for care at a local community facility, by preparing patients for discharge, confirming appointments, visiting them at home and accompanying them to the local facility, where possible.

Early Childhood development / Neuro-cognitive development are often neglected in a child with chronic disease in South Africa. We have now opened a playroom in the Infectious Diseases Ward at Tygerberg Hospital, stocked with age appropriate educational materials and toys.


4. HOPE to Babies

 The care of HIV-positive children has changed in recent years to a more holistic approach and we care now for HIV-positive children in all wards of the Tygerberg Children's Hospital. Doctors from Tygerberg Children's Hospital approached us in 2015 with the request to extend our services to the maternity wards in Tygerberg Children's Hospital.

The mother-to-child-transmission of HIV is the most common way to transmit the virus to the child. The child can be infected with the virus during pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding.

HOPE Cape Town has recognised the need for additional consultations and support for mothers during pregnancy and we would like to make sure that all mothers know their status during pregnancy. Mothers who do not know their status, get tested during pregnancy and childbirth and after childbirth to keep the risk of transmission of the virus from mother to the child as low as possible.
