Mission: CARE for AIDS exists to mobilize the church in caring, both physically and spiritually, for families affected by HIV/AIDS in Kenya. By serving those affected by this disease, CARE for AIDS transforms families, congregations, and entire African communities.
Results: As of summer 2012, CARE for AIDS has graduated over 1700 families from the program, representing over 6,000 children with a new future. We have seen over 500 first-time professions of faith in our clients alone.
Target demographics: Families in Kenyan slums where one or both parents are HIV-positive. We target areas with high poverty rates and search for the families in the most desperate circumstances.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 1,050 clients representing families with over 3,000 children.
Geographic areas served: 5 communities around Kisumu and 9 communities around Nairobi, Kenya.
Programs: 14 ongoing CARE for AIDS centers exist in partnership with local Kenyan churches to care for 75 families each year through a comprehensive nine-month program. The program includes one-on-one counseling, home visits, small group formation, and economic empowerment seminars. Each center employs two Kenyan community health workers full time and costs $1,500 per month to operate.

I have been to Kenya and seen exactly what this ministry is accomplishing with a wonderful Kenyan staff and a few dedicated American workers! They all love the Lord and their Kenyan clients.

I have been to several third world countries over the past 5 years, but my visit to Kenya and approximately 10 of the CFA Centers impacted me in a mighty way. To see the amazing work of both the physical and spiritual counsellors was truly an experience I will never forget! I saw lives being reached in a way that modeled Jesus' ministry. I saw staff members care for both body and soul of each individual. I had the opportunity to see the process from beginning to end by visiting centers one month into the program all the way to experiencing one center's graduation ceremony! How exciting to have the privilege of seeing God's work first hand. CFA is changing the world one life and soul at a time!

My wife and I got a chance to go on home visits while living in Kenya in 2010. We love that it was Christ focused and Keyan led. We walked from home to home with the CFA spiritual counselor and got to visit with the members of the program. We prayed with them and told them we loved them. Care for Aids is a great ministry and blesses people everyday. I am proud to support an organization that brings the love of Christ in such a personal and intimate way.

I went on a missions trip to work with Care for Aids in February of 2012. The trip was amazing. I was SO impressed at the level of local Kenyan leadership and ownership in this ministry. I also love the "teach a man to fish" philosophy. This organization trains the Kenyan leadership and the clients to take care of themselves and be self supporting as they live with the HIV/AIDS virus AND to share what they have learned with others. Their model has vision and wisdom and compassion. And, I loved each and every leader (American and Kenyan) and client that I met. It was a terrific experience and everything I continue to hear about Care for Aids has been terrific. They have great respect in the community as well which allows them to continue to accomplish more as they work to support, educate, and heal those with HIV/AIDS in Kenya and East Africa.
