The consequences of living with HIV and AIDS cannot be successfully treated in isolation, but rather by taking into account the numerous aspects affecting the lives of those living in rural communities in South Africa such as poverty, under-development and lack of resources and education. Through a range of projects the Topsy Community Outreach Programme brings genuine benefit to the quality of life of a significant number within the communities served.
Through three related projects: 1) Home-based care project; which provides basic medical care and counseling, access to social grants, food and educational support through home visits. 2) Orphaned and vulnerable children project which focuses on assistance to families who have taken in orphaned relatives and provides particular support to 'parent-children' and 3) Vegetable Gardening Project which supplies start-up seeds and tools to families to help them become self-sufficient.
