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. In that date we were funded we were very much happy. We found the money and buy office equipments, uniform, stationery we get stipend, payment of rent, payment of electricity and payment of transport. We serve for six villages.
