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.
