in need. A medical doctor visits once weekly, and for those
cases requiring a doctor or specialist treatment, we send our

PDH strives to provide psychological, social and medical support
for those affected by HIV/AIDS. This includes children who
are often left deprived as a result of their parent’s
Poverty, ignorance and lack of education and information are
the biggest contributing factors to the HIV epidemic. For
this very reason we organise and carry out training and information

People come to PDH with problems that are extremely varied
in nature. Examples may include relationship problems, unwanted
or unexpected pregnancies and financial troubles. PDH is often
able to initiate much needed solutions to these problems simply
as a result of counselling those involved.
Education for children
PDH currently has 64 children, most of them orphans, listed
on a program that strives to pay for their school-fees and
materials. We also monitor the children's progress both at
home and school. On top of this, PDH is supporting 17 children
through their apprenticeships in a variety of trades, from
hairdressing through to mechanics.
