Beautiful Gate has supported Crossroads Children’s HIV clinic as part of their community outreach since 2004. Children who were started on ARV’s in those early days have now grown up and face the challenge of negotiating their teenage years successfully. We all know how tough it is being a teenager but it is even tougher if you are growing up with HIV. This is why the focus for Beautiful Gate this year has been to help Crossroads develop a more adolescent friendly HIV service.
Welcome to a window into the lives and issues facing children in the Crossroads community on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa. Most of these stories centre around the children and families we work with at Beautiful Gate South Africa, a Christian non-profit organisation whose mission is to show God's love as we care for and protect children, empower and preserve families and mobilise our community to do the same.
