My wife traveled with AFCA this past year to Kenya to help build two houses for families who did not have adequate housing. While she was there, my wife also was able to see the effects of previous AFCA support in the form of a large Greenhouse which AFCA assisted in building to help the people grow there own food. The more involved my family becomes with AFCA, the more we realize how since they are and how muck actual help they provide to individuals and entire communities which are less fortunate than us.

I have not personally come in contact with any member of this team. However, I myself at the age of 7 had an uncle who passed from the complications of the HIV/AIDS virus. Anything I can do to help someone with the disease, I will always do. This cause is very close to my heart. Keep on doing the good that you do! You will be awarded greatly. Love to you all
