Everybody has needs. But when you're a child without parents, or a child caring for your sick parents, your needs are far greater.

There are an estimated 1,5 million orphans in South Africa under the age of 18 who have lost either a mother or both parents. Of these children, about two thirds have been orphaned due to AIDS. Approximately 300 000 became orphans in 2006.*

Many of these children are members of child-headed households. Some live in the streets. Others are taken in by relatives or foster families. All of them have the same needs as any other child. The trouble is, they don't have the same resources or support networks, and in most instances do not know where to find what they need.

The Hollard Foundation strives to provide them with whatever they need to achieve their full potential in life.
