Dear Power of Love Friend: The Power of Love team extends a personal and heartfelt thank you for your dedication to prevent the spread of HIV, take care of children living with HIV, and empower women to become first-time entrepreneurs. 2016 was an extraordinary year; with your help, we provided a broader set of services to a large and growing number of families in Zambia and India.
The goal of our pediatric HIV care program is to strengthen the community by equipping families with tools to take care of their HIV+ children. Family members of children enrolled are provided with training in caring for an HIV+ child, and education in HIV prevention. This leads to an improvement in the health of the children, prevention of HIV, and reduction in stigma associated with HIV.
