Siyamakha Christian Aids Project (SCAP) was established in January 2010, with a vision
from God. Wayne Carolus and Celeste Cloete-Carolus, committed to empower church
communities on issues around HIV, Aids, TB and other related illnesses, founded it.
SCAP through the founders’ involvement in the HIV, Aids and TB field has developed
considerable expertise in training, research and advocacy. The projects that will be rolled
out by SCAP will have a gender specific focus, and consider the gender imbalances and the
impact thereof in the fight against HIV, Aids and TB.
Violence against women, including sexual violence, is very widespread in South Africa. In
a large survey, more than four in ten South African men reported to have been physically
violent to an intimate partner. Over a quarter of men reported never having raped a woman
with nearly one in twenty committing rape in the previous year. Little difference was found
in the HIV prevalence of men who had raped a woman compared to those who had not.
However, the generally high HIV prevalence among all men surveyed means there is a good
chance that a man who commits rape has HIV. (http:www.avert.org/aidssouthafrica.htm)
The disempowerment of South African women – revealed by such high levels of rape and
domestic abuse – is a factor in the country’s HIV epidemic. Women who are unable to
negotiate safer sex and the use of condoms will inevitably be at a greater risk of HIV.
Research has found that woman who have been physically and sexually assaulted by their
partners, as well as those who are in relationships with men who have a greater degree of
control over them, are at a higher risk of HIV infection.
‘At another moment in our history, in another context, the liberation movement observed
that the time comes in the life of any nation when there remain only two choices: submit or
fight. That time has now come in our struggle to overcome AIDS. Let us declare now, as
we declared then, that we shall not submit.’ Pres. Jacob Zuma.
The time has come for churches and church communities in South Africa to stand up and
take authority. We have been given authority and we need to use it. For too long the
churches have allowed things to happen by being silent, No more! When the churches
started preaching freedom and democracy from the pulpit during the liberation-struggle that
is when things started to change for the better. It is time to bring the churches together, it is
time that they start realising the power they have; and together they will be able to overcome
this famine in the land.
