Assistance with home-based health care will be provided to 100 chronically ill asylum seekers in South Africa. An additional 700 asylum seekers will be assisted with seeking adequate health care through advocacy for fee exemption and the provision of consultation fees and money for medicines where required. The primary focus of this project is the newly arrived and those who are not able to support themselves or their children due to illness and disability.
