Bridges of Hope South Africa
Bridges of Hope South Africa was born in response to the AIDS pandemic that has ravaged the nation of South Africa to a greater extent than any other country on earth, but the needs in the country go far beyond the health and social issues that result from the health crisis.
- South Africa has a staggering unemployment rate of over 40%
- There is a huge lack of housing with millions and millions of people living in squatter camps and in sub-standard housing
- The educational system is desperately lacking for the majority of the population
- The racial tensions left after decades of Apartheid must continue to be addressed and healed
