Review for CARE for AIDS, Fayetteville, GA, USA
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.
