Review for American Foundation For Children With AIDS, Inc., Harrisburg, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name Is Mell Jones and I live in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. I first came across AFCA about 5 years ago when I met Tanya who was getting ready to visit different projects that she had set up in and around Matabeleland. When I first asked I couldn't believe how much work Tanya had accomplished almost single handed.
Tanya Weave and I are now personal friends and every year I get the great privilege of being able to help coordinate a little bit of what her team does. I have seen first hand many of the projects that AFCA have begun and continue to support and grow in and around Zimbabwe and heard many of the testimonies of the people who's lives have been turned around by their amazing work. From Goat projects (often her teams build the goat pens), so teaching sewing classes to girls who can no longer attend school because of financial restraints on their families, to gardening and green houses and so the list goes on. AFCA's passion for helping children and changing lives can only be described as inspirational and wonderful. I feel so honored to be a very small part of this work. Thank you Tanya for all you and your family do! We love and appreciate each one of you!

Review for American Foundation For Children With AIDS, Inc., Harrisburg, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

AFCA is a wonderful organization that does very meaningful work with children and families affected by HIV. I live in Zimbabwe and get to see the impact of this disease on peoples lives on a daily basis. This organization provides people with a real way to sustain themselves, but alongside that provide help and support. I am so grateful for everything they do for the beautiful people of Zimbabwe. Thank you and keep up the excellent work!
