Selinah- August 2009

Selinah- August 2009
Selinah, just 90 days later. Much stronger after taking her Anti Retroviral treatment each day. Her improvement is called the Lazarus effect, this term is used to describe the powerful effect that such medication can have. HIV need not be an instant death sentence; by taking one's meds every day, it is very possible to improve your quality of life dramatically. Please help us to spread this message of hope.

Food gardens
Vegetable gardens the size of a door can feed a family of four with veg for a period of a year! The Topsy Foundation has assisted families to set up hundreds of food gardens as part of the Vegetable Garden Project and the Orphaned and Vulnerable Children (OVC) Project. Beneficiaries of the OVC project have to have a food garden if they are to be part of the programme. (view small | med | large | orig)

Oupa tends a food garden

Oupa tends a food garden
In South Africa, 'Oupa' is translated as 'Grandpa', but our Oupa is anything but! Oupa has worked for the Topsy Foundation since 2004 and he juggles a number of important roles, one of which is to teach people how to set up and maintain a successful food garden. Oupa is proud of his work in our communities, and we are very proud of Oupa. (view small | med | large | orig)

Every child needs to be looked after

Every child needs to be looked after
