We have 158 members: People living with HIV/AIDS from South Africa and various other African countries. One of these we have 113 adults and 45 teenagers living with HIV/AIDS

Support Groups

We hold weekly support group meetings for adults and monthly ones for the teenagers. These are geared at: Helping members to understand and accept their HIV status. Preventing defaulting on ARV medication Helping members to share their status with partners, children and family members. Educating members about HIV/AIDS, and ARV medication and discuss with members on how they can be productive citizens and earn their own income

Skills training

We run a skills training program to help members earn their own living. In the past three years we have trained about 100 adults in skills such as hairdressing, manicure, health care assistant, kindergarten, boiler maker, truck driver, electrical engineer. Once they have a diploma they can start their own small business and use their bonus from the beadwork to kick-start their own enterprise.

Educational support

We help 100 families with educational support for their children. We help (mainly single) mothers to get children into schools, and buy books and school uniforms. We are also helping 7 teenagers with fees for their study at University or a High school. We have found that whilst there is quite a lot of support for adults living with HIV, we are one of the few groups who are assisting teenagers.

Income generation

We offer our members income generating activities: bead work and a sewing workshop. All our products are hand made by our members: migrants living with HIV. All the proceeds go to them in the form of payment for their work and in the form of running the Sr Mura Foundation whose sole purpose is to promote the interest of our members. 




The head of the fundraising department is our treasurer, Portia Makamba-Otto (0738197021). She is assisted by our junior fundraiser Petronella Maduna (0680311285). For overseas fundraising, our CEO, Ricus Dullaert is responsible (+27731529022/+31655771503)

Health care

We employ a part-time registered nurse who runs a clinic and particularly helps the teenage group to learn good habits for living with HIV.
