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.
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.
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.
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.
