2019 – Kids Party

On Monday, 30 September 2019, HOPE Cape Town held its annual Kids' Party for the children that we serve in Delft.

It was such an incredible, fun-filled day with laughter and smiles all around. The aroma of freshly popped popcorn kept the children coming back for more. The huge, colourful jumping castle was a major fun for the younger children. There was face painting for those wanting to be a butterfly or Spiderman for a day, and there was a pamper station with nail painting, nail decor and hand massages. We had an awesome DJ playing all the latest tunes, while the children took the opportunity to have a dance competition with our special HOPE Ambassador Katlego Maboe. One of the greatest highlights of the day was the drumming session with musical tubes - what an experience!

Once the children had worked up an appetite, it was lunch time. Chicken burgers and potato wedges followed by a slice of freshly baked cake. The day ended with a special gift for each child which was prepared by children of the German School in Cape Town.

2019 - Benefit Concert for HOPE Cape Town on Niederwerth Island

Benefit Concert for HOPE Cape Town on Niederwerth Island

The 36th benefit concert of the Lions Club Vallendar took place on 15 September 2019 at the Rhine Island Niederwerth. The South African singer and guitarist Tinus van Dyk from Stellenbosch entertained the audience with a wide musical spectrum of folk, blues, jazz, rock and classical music.

As a member of the Lions Club Vallendar, Mr. Paul Dennis suggested that the proceeds of this year's benefit concert are transferred to HOPE Cape Town.

In the frame of his work for the Ernst Klett Verlag Paul Dennis got introduced to HOPE Cape Town and our work. Since May 2019 HOPE Cape Town is featured in the new "Abi Workshop English South Africa" books of the Ernst Klett Verlag.


2019 - A new car for HOPE Cape Town

HOPE Cape Town is very grateful for the long-term support by BILD "Ein Herz für Kinder”. We recently received a new car, also donated by the German organisation. We are very excited about the vehicle, which will make our work in the townships around Cape Town much easier. A big THANK YOU goes to BILD “Ein Herz für Kinder”!


2019 - Radio Tygerberg in Blikkiesdorp

On 05 June 2019, our community project in Blikkiesdorp was visited by Radio Tygerberg 104FM. Besides staff members of HOPE Cape Town also volunteers and residents of Blikkiesdorp got interviewed. The three hours broadcast provided a deep insight into our work in the community and the living conditions in the township.


2019 - Thank You Viola

Dear Viola,

We congratulate you heartily for the conferment of the Order of Merit of the Free State of Saxony.

This well-deserved award goes far beyond your outstanding commitment and your services to the well-being of Saxony and its people. Through your tireless and selfless commitment, you not only support people in Germany, but you also urge them to help people all across the world so that they can remain in their homeland. You elucidate that we have to fight the problems and needs of the people where they occur.

We as HOPE Cape Town thank you very much for your great commitment and your continuous support. Without your commitment, our work here in South Africa during the past 18 years would not be as successful. Thanks a lot!

With warm regards from Cape Town and from the entire HOPE Cape Town Team

2019 - Occupational Therapy at Tygerberg Hospital School

Occupational Therapy at Tygerberg Hospital School

HOPE Cape Town was able to sponsor Occupational Therapy (OT) assessment and treatment sessions for seven learners, who would normally not be able to afford extra therapy costs, at the Tygerberg Hospital School. For the last quarter of the school term (September – December 2018) the learners of Dr Springer’s class received either small group or individual therapy sessions run by Sensory Kidzone – a private practice already supporting the school.

Therapy sessions were focussed on motor skills (including pencil grip and writing skills), visual perception and eye-hand coordination. The children were assessed at the start and end of the OT treatment period and significant improvements were seen in the majority of learners.

Further to the therapy provided at the school, the learners received specific home programmes to empower the parents with ways in which to play with their children at home while stimulating their development at the same time.

“One of the benefits for us in this process is that we formed a closer relationship with the parents, teachers and management of Tygerberg Hospital School and realised their passion for the children of the school and the future of the school. It has been a privilege to work with these learners and the teachers of Tygerberg Hospital School.”

2019 – Elective Student Neelima

Neelima Agrawal joined us for her elective in February 2019. Neelima is currently studying her final year at NorthWestern University in Chicago, USA. Her final presentation looked at Pharmacovigilance: what side effects can be expected from TB and ARV treatment, and what are the systems put in place to monitor them on a public health/national level. It was interesting to gain insight from how the USA and South Africa differ!


2019 – Elective Student Jessica

Jessica Quaggin-Smith hails from Canada originally but is currently studying her final year at NorthWestern University in Chicago, USA. She joined Hope Cape Town for her elective in February 2019. While she has some experience seeing adults with HIV in Chicago, it was a good learning experience seeing how the management of children and teenagers with HIV is different. Her final presentation was entitled “Challenges to paediatric medication adherence in the United States and South Africa”. A key point from her presentation is summarized in this quote: “Paediatric adherence among … children is best understood as behaviours that are shaped by the context in which adherence occurs”


2019 – Elective Student Britt

Britt Hultgren from University of Missouri in the USA joined us in February 2019. He is no stranger to international travel and cross cultural living, having lived and worked abroad prior to starting Medical studies. His interest in cross-cultural societal dynamics and their impact on health systems and individual care was evident in his engagement within the elective. His final presentation was a lively discussion entitled: “Privilege and progress - The role of the privileged in healthcare Justice: A Discussion across cultures”.
