Hi Morpheus,

Good to see your post today. I searched and found the Lupus Foundation in South Africa's telephone number and website - I hope this can atleast get you started.....

I hope you're doing well. Let us know if you find a group....or perhaps you can be a pioneer today and start one !!!!

Be Happy.

Much love,

Hi Morpheus!

I also live in Cape Town, South Africa and have Lupus! :)

Unfortunately, I am not sure if there are any support groups in Cape Town, but have been wondering about this since I was diagnosed (in December 2006). Please let me know if you manage to find any!

Keep well! :)

Hello all,

I see this thread is dated a few years back so I don't know if you guys will even get this, but i'm a lupus nephritis newbie from Cape Town as well....I know that our church has regular lupus support group meetings...I didn't go to the one they had recently tho...was too sick from this flare...I was wondering if you managed to find out if there are any other groups?

Hope you're all doing good

Hi Social Missy
Ive not come across any support groups in Cape town.
You mentioned your church has support groups, in which area?

I am from the Southen Suburbs. The church is called St Cyprians Anglican Church. My mom says there is an article about the couple who started the group and what it's all about in tonight's Argus.
