Dear friend: Happy July! Our experience over the last 15 years has shown that two things – access to credit and business training – are needed to help ensure that women are able to start and grow their personal businesses. Earnings from businesses help pay for food, medicines, rent, and school expenses. Healthy and educated children, in turn, educate the next generation.
Dear friend: Happy Summer!
Dear friend: As Mother's day draws near, we are thinking of mothers and aunts in Africa who cannot afford food, medicines, and rent for their families and school expenses for their children. Most women in these communities lack marketable skills and have no regular source of income. COVID, last year, aggravated the situation.
Dear friend: Hope you have received the COVID vaccine or have a date to do so. In Zambia, as everywhere else, COVID has had a large negative impact on vulnerable families.
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy March! In Zambia, transmission rates for malaria are high throughout the country. To keep vulnerable families malaria free, 3,000 insecticide treated nets were provided in rural and urban areas in Zambia. Nets provision was preceded by a demonstration and education session, and all activities were completed in a safe manner.
Dear Friend: Wishing that 2021 is filled with good health and happiness for you and your family. This year could be a turning point in ending AIDS if a vaccine for HIV become available.
Dear Friend: Happy holidays! Looking back 2020 has been a tough year.
Dear Friend: Happy World AIDS Day! Every year, December 1 is designated to support adults and children living with HIV, and to pledge to continue the fight against HIV and AIDS. We believe that together we can end AIDS. In Zambia, only 59% of all people living with HIV have undetectable viral loads; this number must be increased to 75% for the epidemic to end.
Dear Friend: Happy November. Your generous support has resulted in a marked improvement in the health and income stability of thousands of vulnerable families.
