Nestled in the mountain slopes of the fairest cape you will find Kraaifontein. Kraaifontein is one of the Northern suburbs of Cape Town in the Western Cape, South Africa. The name of the Care Point which accommodates most of the projects is better known as Lofdal Park.
Since 1994 we have seen this community expand, from a mere 85.000 people to more than 200.000 people, most of them relocated from provinces and foreign countries in search of a better future.
Many of them were not successful in this quest and had to settle for a minimum wage, day to day employment and low cost housing. Due to insufficient income, because of an unemployment rate of 45% in South Africa, issues like poverty, child neglect and alcohol abuse are the order of the day. Great numbers of people staying in vicinity of Lofdal are treated for TB and HIV/Aids related illnesses. The successes of these treatments are often delayed due to malnutrition or the lack of food.
