With the global COVID-19 pandemic now spreading quickly in South Africa, local communities are feeling the devastating effects of the virus. With the South African tourism industry being hit hardest by the outbreak, many people have lost their jobs due to the lockdown measures. We are committed to continue offering health & safety support to these vulnerable communities for as long as this pandemic remains, but Hlokomela needs your help to do this.
Limpopo is one of the worst areas in South Africa for poverty, whilst lacking basic facilities in the local villages such as running water. Hlokomela is an established non-profit clinic committed to serving farm workers and their families. Our goal is to provide a cost-effective and sustainable way to screen for and treat breast cancer, preventing hundreds of deaths each year.
