©InfoChildren are one of the groups hardest hit by the HIV pandemic, which is particularly rife in Southern Africa.
Dikeledi, 18, is the eldest of five children who are cared for by their aunt following the death of their mother from AIDS in 2003.
Each week Patricia Sebiji, a volunteer from the South African Red Cross Society, pays the family a visit to make sure they have everything they need, including food and blankets.
Dikeledi knows Patricia very well.
"When we have no money left to buy school materials, like stationery and school-books, the Red Cross provides them for us, along with a satchel. We were also given a tracksuit so that we can take part in sports activities at school," Dikeledi says.
When necessary, the Red Cross also pays school fees for children who do not receive a grant from the state.
Dikeledi is lucky she is supported by her aunt, but there are thousands of children who have to leave school each year to provide for their brothers and sisters.
