Hungry Patients relieved after receiving sandwiches

Access to life-saving antiretroviral drugs (ARVs) has historically been problematic in South Africa. While government interventions and cheaper drugs have resulted in more HIV-positive patients receiving ARVs, they still face other obstacles. Adequate nutrition is essential for the drugs to work effectively but many patients cannot afford to follow recommended diets or even eat three meals a day. As part of its health and food aid projects, the Al-Imdaad Foundation has implemented a Slice4Life feeding scheme at Estcourt Provincial Hospital’s ARV Clinic. The campaign was launched on Wednesday July 14 2010 and runs every Monday – Thursday from 8am – 1pm. 450 sandwiches are prepared and distributed daily to patients who visit the ARV clinic. AIF has enlisted Mama Sara, a Somalian refugee as a local service provider to make the sandwiches. The Slice4Life project is a joint initiative between AIF and the Estcourt Provincial Hospital and is endorsed by the KZN Department of Health. AIF also runs a Slice4Life feeding scheme at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital’s ARV clinic in Soweto, Johannesburg. This project will be expanded to major hospitals and clinics in all 9 provinces shortly.
