HEART and our partners are empowering current and future generations of Kenyan people through disease prevetion education and economic development. This is accomplished thorugh Christian compassion, health intervention and resources as we promote physical, spiritual and emotional health.
Programs: As an orphan prevention initiative, WEEP empowers women with HIV/AIDS.HEART believes that in keeping mom alive, healthy and self-sustaining, will prevent her children from becoming orphans. Operating in impoverished slums of Nairobi and Mombassa, WEEP identifies HIV positive women who have been widowed or abandoned. It then commits to provide medical care, food, nutrition, shelter and access to ARV drugs. It also assures that their children have access to education by providing resources to attend school. Once stable the women break through the stigma HIV brings. The WEEP women are trained as peer counselors referred to as PROPS (Parent Rescue Orphan Prevention Strategy) which supports with nutrition, care and begins the process of helping them become sustainable.

Roy & I run a ministry called Eden's Song where we serve missionaries out on the field. HEART is one of our favorite places to visit for many reasons. The staff, food and rooms at the lodge are wonderful. There is not a high enough compliment for how they treat their guests...and feed them! The organization helps many people throughout Kenya providing many options for self-sufficiency and village unity. Vickie is amazingly in love with Kenya and the people of the country. She has spent much of her life working side by side with them, learning their culture and what would help them. Nothing stops her from teaching them to strive for better health & education. Eden's Song promotes and provides for Kids for School, Freedom for Girls as well as the WEEP programs. Each year we look forward to spending a portion of our trips through Africa with HEART.
