St John Home-Based Care Programme

St John Home-Based Care Programme

The St John Home-Based Care Programme, an initiative by St John South Africa, has been benefitting communities in South Africa since 2004.

The programme provides much needed health education, especially relating to childhood illnesses, and trains people in how to look after a seriously ill person in their home. As HIV/AIDS is particularly prevalent in the area, this means many terminally ill people are desperately in need of care.

The programme was launched with the help of an appeal by the Grand Prior, HRH The Duke of Gloucester, and St John Scotland members contributed over £23,000 after this initial call to action. Further contributions since then have totalled £25,000. 

Designed to benefit South Africa and all ten other South African countries in which St John has a presence, the programme has so far been successful in educating people to be able to provide home-based care within impoverished townships.
