Chibolya has no government facilities, including no health posts, government schools or law enforcement services. The community is incredibly hostile and suspicious of outside organisations and NGO’s. We have been operating in the community through our social work team and utilising our volunteer women’s groups to build a trust with community leaders, teachers and schools.
Through hard work and perseverance TTF staff have successfully held 27 outreaches and tested 1,575 individuals for HIV.
It costs TTF around $1,000 per month to run four community outreaches and test up to 400 individuals with the support of local organisations like the DSA and individual donors we can continue to operate in this hard to reach compound.
