A Mother's Story

A mother's story ...

"When I realized that my daughter was HIV positive, I thought it was the end of her life.  I never expected her to attain the age of 10 years.  Right now she looks good and healthy ever since she was enrolled in care.  I was counseled, my daughter was treated and now there is a very big improvement.  Before my daughter was enrolled in care, she was very thin; she had on and off fevers, diarrhea, a cough and general body weakness.  I'm very happy for the community volunteers and field officers who always visit me at home for routine counseling.  My daughter has a future because of Baylor-Uganda.  I thank God, and all the Baylor staff for the continuous support, care and treatment given to my daughter"

Sarah has been in our care for almost two years.  Her mother can see a future because of donors like yourself providing medicine for HIV+ children. You have made a difference and we thank you for your generosity.

Getting from Point A to Point B

Greenhouse

Don't you love to see photos of the leafy green vegetables from the greenhouses in Mombasa?

How about all of those papaya hanging from the trees?

We are thrilled with the harvests and what they mean for our families.  However, it feels like we're spinning our wheels by renting a truck for a few months at a time.  The vegetables need to get to market to keep the program thriving, but we haven't been able to purchase a truck.  Not to mention the number of papaya they will need to harvest from the 1500 papaya trees we've planted!

Will you help us get from point A to point B?  Let's get this done and raise the money needed to purchase a truck!

Please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@afcaids.org to learn more about our programs.
