Project: South Africa – HIV/AIDS outreach and community development via Edzimkulu
In the Underberg region of the KwaZulu-Natal Province, a little village called Ndawana has been decimated by HIV/AIDS. Edzimkulu is working with the people of Ndawana to help develop resources in their community. A centre is being built to unify the community by providing a facility for education, training, and manufacturing activities. Edzimkulu will also provide medical care which currently does not exist in Ndawana.
This charity organization they formed to support this project is called Edzimkulu – A society for children of HIV/AIDS.
We have made this project a benefactor of Hands Across Africa for a couple of reasons. We feel that this grassroots project has much of the same basic values as Hands Across Africa. Simply put, people just banding together to help ”lift the lives of others in need”.
