Yesterday at the United States of America consulate in Westlake at Reddam Avenue, it was all smiles and tears as 14 community based organisations in the Western Cape received substantial financial assistance as part of their fight against HIV and AIDS as well as poverty reduction.

These organisations were given the grants as part of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS relief by the United States government.

The organisations range from orphanages and schools to hospices as well as safe homes that are aimed at protecting vulnerable children from HIV/AIDS and the unemployed elderly

US consulate general Albert Mayberry says the entire amount 143.382 US dollars will be divided among all the organisations.

“All of your organisations have shown that you are truly committed to benefiting and in improving the lives and individuals in your communities, says Mayberry.

“You have proven that determination really pays of, although sometimes your calling is a hard one to follow.”
