What is Support Group

BRIEF HISTORY ABOUT CAFDA

The Cape Flats has many challenges and reached numerous milestones in its long history since it was established. It has managed to attain a successful transformation from a strictly curative service and material aid, to a more holistic and developmental balance with much greater input in the community.

CAFDA's programme is practical, promotes active participation from the public and the broader community, to develop their skills to create their own opportunities for future sustainability. We have embarked on the challenge of eradicating the stigma and rejection of HIV/AIDS (infected and affected) and build understanding, loving and accepting environment.

SKILLS DEVELOPMENT

Members of the group were taught skills to generate an income for themselves, beaded bangles and necklaces, recycle products example egg boxes made in beaded flowers, gift bags made of cornflake boxes, coke bottles made in jewellery boxes. Our mission is to re-use recycle products and be Eco-friendly to our environment.

NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS

A cooked meal is provided as it is important to have a meal that gives you strength to carry you through.

ADDITIONAL PARTNERSHIPS FORGED

These partnerships enabled the recruitment of 14 members of the action Support Group clinic eg. Senior Sr. L. Lukas, ARV nurse Michelle, Dr. Devou and Dr. Richard as well as Welfare Social workers, from CAFDA, by helping and encouraging patients to join a support group and have a stable positive life.
