Care for Aids provides support for the whole individual as a focus of their mission: physical, mental and spiritual. In this way, they have been able to change the lives of people potentially devastated by Aids in a culture that ostracizes those who have contracted the disease. They provide the individual with not just support and medicine, but also hope - and the tools to support themselves financially and relationships that transcend the loneliness typically associated with those diagnosed with Aids. It is truly a tremendous organization!
