Community Based Organisations

We work mainly in the deeply rural Eastern Cape area around Matatiele. Each community based organisation has a community care centre, organic food garden, chicken coops, a playground for the children and on-going developments to ensure sustainability.

World Aids Day awareness and testing was held at Mamahou CBO, ASAP's long independent group. The local community showed up to support, and included Chief Thlakanelo Moshoeshoe, Headman Detebe Ramotsamai, Rev Letlotlo Teu, Ward 13 committee, Health Pensioner Mrs Mahome, Education Pensioner Mrs Ramotsamai, Zukile Khaizana Social Worker from Social Development, Mrs Machele Social Worker from Social Development. Rita Peters from Department of Health (DOH), Sister Skonje from DoH, and 4 other nurses and 5 lay counsellors.
This is a community who are no stranger to the devastation wrought by AIDs. Mama Maome welcomed everyone: "We have lost family members, we have seen our loved ones suffer. HIV came to our attention about 28 years ago. Things are no longer the same. YES lives have been lost but all over the world scientists are still trying to find a cure and now people must take responsibility and take their medication."
Testing and awareness exercises commenced with the 200 people who attended. The day closed with a very moving ceremonial lighting of candles to commemorate the friends and family members who lost their lives, with other coloured candles representing faith hope and love. A nutritious meal was enjoyed by all who attended and one of the community members told a bit of her story: "The centre brought meaning to my life when I was at a low point. During home visits the caregivers showed me they cared. The food they brought me allowed me to take my medication."

Meet the Carer
Matumelo Molawo is the 42 year old project manager of Reahasetjhaba, one of the best established CBOs with whom ASAP has partnered. She oversees a team of women who feed a nutritious daily meal to the vulnerable children of the village. Matumelo is a mother of 3 who is most grateful for the skills imparted by Dlalanathi: play with us on their recent visit to their centre. Dlalanathi provided a facilitated training with the carers on basic childcare and development, and how to communicate with children through play. Carers were taught to make dolls for their own children, and the children who visit their community care centre. With this new-found skill Matumelo says she feels better equipped to understand and provide for the emotional needs of the children. We wonder if the women of Rea will make dolls to sell in the village or in the local town? We'll keep you updated.
