Grandmothers, mothers and aunts in Africa take care of their HIV+ children with very few resources. Most families enrolled in our pediatric HIV care program face food insecurity, illness, impact of HIV, and have insufficient knowledge about HIV.
Programs for Women
Today we are thinking of the mothers and aunts in Africa who cannot afford necessities such as food, medicines and rent for their families and school expenses for their children. Since last year, COVID has aggravated the situation.
Zambia is among the 20 countries with the highest malaria incidence and mortality globally. Most families living in resource poor neighborhoods, are vulnerable to malaria but do not have the information on how to prevent malaria or the resources to purchase mosquito bed nets.
Today we are thinking of mothers and aunts in Africa whose families are vulnerable to COVID. Families in Zambia are especially vulnerable as they have little or no information about COVID and have weaker immune systems if living with HIV.
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.
