Foremost, you will help to save lives. Unlike some charities, we can’t afford flashy advertising or celebrity endorsements.
Instead what we have is a group of passionate people, who care only about changing the lives of others for the better.
Unlike most charities we do want to become self-financing in the future.
We empower the people that we help, creating a better future for the community.
I have HIV, in fact I have full blown AIDS and my C.D.4. count was just 123 when I met the white lady Annette whom we love as our carer. I have never had such wonderful care and consideration. Both my Sister who is HIV positive and I have been having free treatment with GNHCT since 2001. My family are so grateful for the help given by this charity. We had completely free treatment for over 9 years and then the charity began to struggle and made a small charge of R25 per bottle, which for us is still very cheap. I don’t want to take ARV’s because of the side effects, also they are not a cure.
I have had so much advice from this charity and been given so much care and comfort. I also received clothes parcels and food parcels until I was strong enough to get work again. My C.D.4. Count is 1,300 now and we are hoping that it will continue to go up. I am devoted to this charity and all it does here in South Africa. We love what GNHCT set out to achieve and has managed to provide for our people, over many over the years.
I am 34 I have two children. My husband has died of T.B. and my child has suspected HIV; but I never saw his medical file. I have recently found out that I am HIV+ and I was really depressed, as life has been a real struggle to keep food on the table for the kids. I went to the big clinic which is the Department of Health; and I had counseling and then the finger prick test said that I had HIV. I had to wait several months to have the C.D.4. Count done; as each time I went they were so busy, so I decided to go to the clinic at Orange Farms, it was free and I was seen and tested within 3 hours.
