Elandskop Beneficiary Familes to Receive Houses
The SACBC AIDS Office visited Elandskop for a preliminary assessment regarding the building of OVC houses. We were taken around by caregivers to visit the first beneficiary families identified. People live in poor conditions, with no water or electricity. In one hut, a woman is looking after an astonishing number of orphans, 26 of them. The area is bitterly cold, exposed to the Drakensberg mountains. The project in Elandskop has already submitted all quotations and required documentation. The SACBC AIDS Office agreed that work on the houses should proceed immediately.
