An outreach to an AIDS ravaged community in northeast India where HIV+ children and their caregivers are being cared for by providing medical care, good nutrition and school fees and supplies for the children.
Mother & Child HIV Outreach
Children in the Program
In far northeast India is a small community that has been ravaged by AIDS.
All of the children have lost their fathers to AIDS.
The 25 children in this community are themselves HIV positive.
These are the children's caregivers. In some cases the caregiver is the child's mother who is HIV positive. If the mom has died, then it is an aunt or grandmother who takes care of the child.
When we discovered this community, they were barely surviving.
They had inadequate food, little or no medical care, and children who had dropped out of school.
For about $1,000 a month, we are working to make sure they get proper food, medical care, and fees and supplies for school.
The women weave beautiful fabrics in their homes. We are working to help them develop a market to sell their fabric in order to support their families.
Please join us in praying for and supporting this outreach.
