Thousands of South African women and children in need, infected with or affected by HIV, have received life saving testing, treatment, care, education and psychosocial support from The Gift of Hope.

The Gift of Hope, founded in 2006, is a non-profit organization that supports South African women and children in need, providing them with a holistic range of health care services, including: HIV testing, treatment, care, education and psychosocial support services. For 8 years our programs were focused in Kwa Zulu Natal, a region that lies at the very epicenter of the HIV 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 most in need.
