To Influence and impact local communities in all spheres of health, particularly those areas identified by the local communities and health departments.
To assist communities to access health and welfare services, to raise the level of health experienced by the individual and community by introducing and supporting a framework of care, support, education and initiate facilitation that is both sustainable and self determined.
Children, in particular, need to be active participants in their own care.

infected and affected people in South Africa.
The CHoiCe logo is very special. It depicts two people holding hands forming a heart, being supported by strong hands, surrounded by the words: caregiver. While CHoiCe would never underestimate the importance of men in our lives and the value that they have in our families and community, we pay tribute to women.
In particular, the CHoiCe women: their energy, their strength in lifting family members and others around them, the healing power of hands, their passion – for the people we work with and for making a difference, and their kind and concerned hearts…
Symbolising God’s love.
