"It is estimated that there are 8000 - 10000
orphans in the Pietermaritzburg municipal area, and in anticipation of
this scenario, the Children in Distress (CINDI) Network was formed in
July 1996. CINDI currently consists of over seventy government and
non-government organisations and individuals, who collaborate around
children affected by HIV/AIDS in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, South
Africa". (CINDI Annual Report 2002 page 2)
partners look to each other for support, share information, mobilise
resources and unite for action.
In 2003, the CINDI archives were
moved to the Alan Paton Centre and Struggle Archives.
