Continued Blessings

Ngbando Family
Ngbando Family

Greetings from the Ngbando family!  We are sending our thanks to the American Foundation for Children with AIDS for including us in your self-reliance project.  I am happy to send you a report on our family project.  I had no opportunity to educate my children until your help arrived.  We received seeds and rabbits and have been able to produce enough food.  We eat them and sell them to provide an education and clothing for our children.  The rabbits have multiplied to the point that we were able to complete our contract.  We now have 9 rabbits for the family!  With all my heart, I thank AFCA and your supporters.  God bless you and I hope this encourages you to continue this blessing. 

May these words from the Ngbando family bring you joy in knowing you have made a difference!  Together we are changing lives and the future looks brighter.  If you have questions or are interested in learning more about this program or others, please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@afcaids.org.

Christine and Simon Send Thanks and Prayers

Christine and Simon
Christine and Simon

Christine and her husband, Simon, are both HIV positive. They have 7 children and 5 are enrolled in a nearby primary school.  Their main occupation is peasant farming and sometimes hiring out labor in other people’s farms.  Taking care of this big family, including meeting their education as well medical bills, hasn’t been easy. They struggle to make ends meet on a daily basis since there isn’t any stable source of income.

Christine and Simon send their thanks and prayers for choosing them to benefit from this program and they promise to work hard to bring up their family.  Your support of our livestock and agricultural project means so much to this dear family.  You have made it possible for them to start making a life for themselves and to send their children to school.  It may seem like just a start, but it's an incredible blessing for Christine and Simon.

Thank you for your support as we help families like this one and so many more.  You give them hope!  If you have questions or are interested in learning more about this program or others, please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@afcaids.org.

Regina's Seeds

Regina
Regina

 

A variety of vegetables in Regina’s garden have outlived it's period and she is looking forward to receiving new seeds to plant.  She has some seeds she saved, like tomatoes and peas which she is going to plant before receiving seeds from our program.  We have urged our beneficiaries to save seeds and they are doing that.  Regina is 56 years old and has four children.  Three of them are attending school!  Simon is 7 years old and is pictured with Regina.  He should have started school, but has been able to do so because of his poor health.

Like most beneficiaries, Regina is very hardworking and has managed to provide her children with the vegetable nutrition they need, and  she has gone an extra mile selling some of the vegetables from her garden to raise money for children’s other needs.  Your donations to support our Zimbabwe livestock and agricultural project have made this all possible for Regina and many other families just like hers.  The health of children is improving daily and they are able to attend school.  The future is brighter and you have made dreams come true!
