The Gift of Hope, founded in 2006, is a non-profit organization that supports South African women and children infected with and affected by HIV, providing them access to critical healthcare services including HIV testing, treatment, care, and psychosocial support. For 8 years our programs were focused in Kwa Zulu Natal, a region that lies at the very epicenter of the epidemic. We are proud to have expanded our reach into Johannesburg in 2014 with an exciting, new partnership with The Witkoppen Health and Welfare Centre.
Please join us on our journey of bringing hope to those living with HIV.

Celebrating Eight Years of bringing hope
The Gift of Hope celebrates eight years of dedicated programs in Kwa Zulu Natal, for seven years at the Sinikithemba Clinic and McCord Hospital, and starting in 2012 at the Hillcrest AIDS Centre Trust. We celebrate the progress that has been made over these years in addressing the HIV epidemic, and particularly the provision of free antiretroviral therapy for all HIV infected South Africans through the public sector.
