The Khulumani Apartheid Reparation Database (KARD) is the result of more than 10 years of needs assessment surveys conducted in all nine provinces of South Africa by the Khulumani Support Group amongst victims and survivors of gross human rights abuses under Apartheid.
The Truth and Reconciliation Committee's statement taking may have ended in 1998, but this was only the start for the majority of apartheid victims and survivors of gross human rights abuses to come forward and submit statements about the atrocities of the past that changed their lives forever.
In 2010, the Khulumani Support Group had 48,619 members listed in its membership database. There are still more than 15,000 membership/survey forms that are currently being captured. KZN has the largest membership (57%) with its provincial office in Durban. The Western Cape is the second largest (16%) with its provincial office in Salt River, Cape Town. North-West (9%) has grown tremendously over the past few years and now has a membership larger than that of Gauteng (7%).
