Byldrift CHBC

Byldrift CHBC had been built with the coalition and support from the Departments of Health, Social Development, Lepelle-Nkumpi Municipality, National Lottery, community, community leaders and Magoshi. It was established as an answer to the high pandemic of HIV/AIDS in the community and the whole country. The whole process had numerous achievements starting with creating awareness and insight about the disease, the causes, prevention and treatment. It created jobs to twenty-eight (28) people in the community who also got education on HIV/AIDS and related diseases certification. The same twenty-eight members have got a uniform which identifies their visibility in the community when they are busy with care work. It assisted three hundred and sixty (360) HIV/AIDS patients and two hundred and sixty (260) orphans and child-headed families with Birth Certificates. The Department of Social Development provided ten (10) child-headed families with uniform distributed through the project. The local clinic provides the project with Health kit-bags for care work services in the community. The community is also benefiting from the project borehole which supplies the community with water for their domestic chores and vegetable gardens. This is also benefiting the HIV/AIDS patients and child-headed families with fresh produce vegetables and fruits to those who have some orchards. One of the community members donated three (3) shacks which serve as offices for the project manager, project coordinator and the finance officer.

The organization started in July 2000, at Maraba Clinic to develop a home based care. We started a home base care with 24 woman and 1 man .We formed home base care in a rural area seen that there is high rate of death and most people are dying of HIV/AIDS. We assist care for HIV/AIDS, TB, STROKE, HIGH BLOOD and CHILDREN HEADED FAMILIES. The organization has seen that we have many orphans so which means we are 25 care health workers. We establish a Drop In Center in 2006 at the place called LEPOTLAKO, and the OFFICE OF THE PREMIER funded us with R30 000.00 for gardening. We give the social development a number of 99 orphans and 40 vulnerable children. We started to form a group of care health workers to work as a group of two of them are cooking, five care health workers are bathing children those who does not have families, thirteen care health workers are helping the patients at home (door to door visits). We refer our orphans to the Department of Social Development to help them with foster grants. We identified 92 patients and refer them to MARABA CLINIC for assistant them with diagnoses and treatment. The nurses and the TB Coordinator at the clinic assist us to give care and support them. One man is helping our orphans to practice soccer and securing our place during the day. In 2003 we formed a group of four care health workers to make a vegetable garden in the clinic (greenery) to serve our orphans, vulnerable children and patients those who are affected and infected by HIV/AIDS with vegetables. We have managed to help them to get food parcels from our social workers so that they could have a better life.
In 2007 September a group of 6 care health workers were trained at NCHEBEKO SKILLS CONSULTANCY as ANCILLARY HEALTH WORKERS AT DOORNSPRUIT GA – MASHASHANE.

In 2011 we go back to MARABACLINIC, and sister in charge trained us with the group seven (7) care health workers with a HOME COMMUNITY BASED CARER. We recruit twelve (12) members to come and volunteer with us without money, all in all we are a group of 19 care health workers woman only. And in 2011 the Department of Health gives us a proposal asking funding for Stipend, Stationery, Uniform, Equipment, Transport, Rent, Electricity, Telephone and Board Meeting and in 2012 they funded us with.
