We originally gave to CFA because our great nephew is one of the amazing, dedicated young men who founded this work. Having seen and heard just how powerful this ministry is, through CFA Updates and from the lips of those on the ground in Kenya, we know it is something we will continue to support - because it WORKS! The CFA model is simply brilliant. By training and holding up the arms of local ministers/counselors, they have overcome barriers of distrust and fear among their clients. By providing Spiritual, Emotional and Physical counseling they are changing the lives and eternal destinies of people. Families have real hope and regain self respect by working as they grow stronger. We are very grateful for and pray for God's continued favor on those who serve in and support CFA.

I support CARE for AIDS because I believe wholeheartedly in their mission of serving those with HIV/AIDS physically and spiritually. I know my donations are going to help clients in Kenya with HIV in tangible ways. I've been privileged to travel to Kenya and see this work firsthand, and get to know the Kenyans who are the hands and feet of this ministry. I believe in the staff at CARE for AIDS and know their heart. They want to share the love of Christ to a suffering population in Kenya, the same way Jesus did -- first treating their physical needs, then offering them eternal life.
THIS ORGANIZATION, BEGUN BY A HANDFUL OF TWENTY-SOMETHINGS JUST A FEW YEARS AGO, HAS DEMONSTRATED REMARKABLE MATURITY, EFFICIENCY, MARKETING AND COMPASSION. GOD'S HAND HAS BLESSED THEIR HUMBLE EFFORTS MAGNIFICENTLY. THE LIVES AND FAMILIES OF HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN IMPACTED POSITIVELY, THROUGH BOTH PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL AND SPIRITUAL ASSISTANCE.
Care for AiDS is one of the best nonprofits I could support. I'm so proud of how they make sure to actively share the gospel with their patients. So few organizations do this and it is truly the biggest reason why I am so thankful for Care for AIDS continuing to grow! Keep it up!
Care for Aids is working in a unique way to assist the emotional, physical and spritual needs of adults and families with HIV/AIDS in Kenya. As a donor and having been on trips to see the work they are doing in Kenya, I can confirm the impact they are having with the over 2000 friends they have graduated from their program. Their team in the states and on the ground in Kenya are dedicated to serving those in need and I look forward to partnering with them to expand the number of centers in the future.
I have been privileged to watch the growth of CARE for AIDS (CFA) from the very beginning. Knowing the founders personally, I trusted that my donations would be used wisely, and I have supported CFA financially for the past several years. In June 2012, I was able to travel to Kenya for the first time with CFA. Seeing the ministry firsthand made me even more confident in and enthusiastic about the mission and strategies of CFA. They understand that you must meet people's physical needs before meeting their spiritual needs. The way they partner with the local churches in Kenya is ideal, because the center workers know the community that they are working with and are most equipped to meet their needs. I was most impressed with the center workers, as they go above and beyond their basic job descriptions and are truly concerned with helping clients to "live positively." Getting to know them was the highlight of my trip! The clients go through a 9-month program. They are provided a food ration, have weekly counseling sessions with the medical and spiritual counselor, attend seminars to become educated on health issues and job skills, and are visited in their homes by the center workers. CFA walks alongside the clients during their time in the program and seeks to equip them to live healthy, self-sustaining lives. The program focuses on adults, but when adults are alive and healthy, they can take care of their children. I believe that the holistic focus of CFA is unique and truly impactful to the families and communities in Kenya.
I participated in a Vision Trip to Kenya in March of 2011 and I was struck by the amount of economic poverty and social isolation that resulted from HIV and AIDS infected individuals. CARE for AIDS has transformed many victims to victors - helping them find salvation along the way. I was fortunate to have founders Nick and Justin as my classmates in college and their unbridled enthusiasm for helping others in need resulted in this great initiative. CARE for AIDS is doing wonderful work in Africa - keep up the good job!
When Justin began to explain what he and his partners have done with Care for Aids it touched our hearts. My wife Diana and I truly appreciate what the organization is doing for kids and the region. We look forward to being a growing part of this organization and observing and contributing to the amazing work and passion they bring every day.
I have watched Care For Aids grow from a vision in a college dorm room to an international ministry that saves lives. Twice I have been to Africa and visited clients who were resurrected through Care For Aids from deaths door. CFA is about Kenyans working to save Kenyans physically, emotionally, financially and spiritually. Hurting people who have given up on being loved, being cared about and living are nurtured and coached back to a healthy and vibrant life. There would be no need for orphanages in Africa if all HIV+ adults could attend the CFA programs which extend their lives and restore their purpose. The organization is extremely frugal and the leadership committed to financial responsibility. I encourage you to go on a CFA Vision Trip that will thrill you with what is happening in Kenya or to financially and prayerfully support them from home. There is NO doubt that your money is saving lives and restoring parents to children when you donate to Care For Aids.
I first found out about CARE for AIDS about a year ago. Three of their representatives shared their testimonies about how God has been working in their villages in Kenya. Their grassroots no "hype" model for service and donations really drew me in. Their heart and passion truly shines through and yet they are some of the most humble people I've met in an organization like this. I hope to go on a trip and volunteer for them sometime soon!
