Greenhouse Update in Pictures!

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!

Are you up for a challenge?  From April 27 through May 1, thousands of people across the world are coming together to unite against extreme poverty.  Will YOU be one of them?  Go to www.afcaids.org/live to learn more and to sign up.

Changing Lives Every Day

Thembeni and Children
Thembeni and Children

Thembeni is a forty-five year old sickly widow who is looking after three children.  They live in the Mahwanke Village in the Gwanda District.  Their lives have been changed because of your generosity. 

Thembeni tells us ... "I am thankful to the people who donated porridge because my family has been struggling to get nutritional rich food.  The porridge is going to be of great help for the children who are going to school.  They can go after having a very strong breakfast of corn soya blend."

The family was also part of the families who received rabbits in 2012 and she is very happy with the performance of the rabbit project at her home.  Thembeni continues her story ... “The rabbit project at our home, where we were given two female rabbits has been a vehicle for a breakthrough iIn our lives. The number of the rabbits this year has gone up to eighteen.  We have given back two rabbits and have sold seven and I managed to buy uniforms for my children and pay school fees. We have slaughtered three as relish and the meat is tasty and tender."  The family presently has three rabbits and two of them are pregnant!

We share these first hand stories so you know exactly what the American Foundation for Children with AIDS is able to do with the funds you have donated.  Lives are being changed every day!
