AFCA is a non-profit organization that helps HIV+/AIDS children and their guardians in sub-Saharan Africa who have no other access to aid.

Strong leadership, good corporate governance, financial transparency, a focused initiative, and a strong history of mission fulfillment makes this one of the most noteworthy charities serving the global HIV/AIDS effort.
It was my pleasure to work with Sister Veronica Wanjiru Mwaura and Nurse Lucy Nyaga from the Mombasa CBHC & AIDS Relief Project in Kenya (partners with AFCA) in educating our local congregation on the needs of clients in Africa. Their passion and dedication were clear not only in their presentation, but also in the way they have kept faithful contact with us, allowing us even greater opportunities to be involved in their mission. We look forward to participating in projects on a continuing basis with AFCA.
