Khululeka Grief Support

Khululeka Grief Support

Khululeka Grief Support was registered as a Non-Profit Organisation in February 2005 with the vision of providing appropriate support for every grieving child and adolescent in South Africa. Research has identified that parental death is associated with HIV positive status in females and in males with having recent unprotected sex. The 2016 International AIDS conference in Durban confirmed that young women aged 15-24 in Sub-Saharan Africa are at greatest risk of becoming HIV positive. Depression has been clearly linked to riskier sexual behaviours in young women and a recent randomised control trial showed that the Khululeka support group significantly reduced the symptoms of depression amongst teen girls.
