The Arthritis Foundation of South Africa

The main purpose of the Arthritis Foundation South Africa is to create a better life for all affected by arthritis. 

We do this by enabling the more than 8 million South Africans with one or more of the 200 different types of arthritis to live a valuable life in all its dimensions – societal, economic, familial and emotional - through increasing awareness, providing education and offering support.We run regular support groups, meeting once a month and working to a syllabus.

We man a Helpline for the many callers who are bewildered about their disease and the treatment they may be receiving and often in terrible pain. We run a shop selling assistive devices to make everyday life easier for people with arthritis (back cushions, bottle and tap openers, devices for putting on and taking off socks and shoes, back scrubbers and so on).

We also sell greetings cards and Africana prints as part of our fundraising campaign. we provide free information about arthritis and how to cope with it, in the form of numerous publications. We print and distribute leaflets about approximately 50 different sorts of arthritis, about different treatments and on diet, exercise and lifestyle advice.
