    A little bit goes a long way
    By - Eliza Squibb - Executive Director
    Our conditions are not ideal: the only space for the cooking activities is in the crowded courtyard of our Hope Center Clinic, between the maternity ward and the consultation rooms. Our patients however, are eager to make do with whatever they have. Rain or shine, they cook the weekly meal for all the HIV patients and their...

    Ongoing programs despite civil unrest in Bamako
    By - Mali Rochas - Executive Director
    As you know, a military coup took place in March 2012, and there is ongoing civil unrest in Bamako. The US embassy remains open, but Peace Corps volunteers have been withdrawn. Accordingly, we have reduced our own presence in Bamako to the minimum; however, we remain committed to continuing support of access to HIV care at...

    "Imagine this": Words from a GAIA volunteer.
    By - Shahla Yekta - GAIA volunteer
    Imagine this: You are on your way to have lunch with the women of Sikoro. The walk from the modestly furnished house that GAIA rents to Sikoro will take you about 45minutes. The heat will have you drenched within minutes -no matter the time of the day- and you will have to share the road with cars, motorcycles,...

    By - Mali Rochas - Executive Director

    An impact so easy to see, there's no need for words
    By - Andrew Meaux - In-the-Field Traveler
    When originally planning for the trip to West Africa I was at first a bit apprehensive of site visits in French. I've only studied the language for a year and I feared I might not be able to understand the organization's work or get a good sense of their impact if the visit was entirely in French. Meeting with GAIA...

Good local food also improves the nutritional status of our patients and is essential to the success of their therapy. In 2009 – with...
