Do I really make a difference?

Do you ever ask yourself if you are actually making a difference?  Perhaps you feel so small in this great big world?  Do you wonder if the donation you made ever touches the life of a child affected by HIV/AIDS?

Take a moment to look at the attached photos and really enjoy the smiles on the faces of the families YOU have directly touched.  You donation made it possible for the American Foundation for Children with AIDS to distribute goats to families in Metopos, Zimbabwe.  Families where widows and grandmothers are raising children affected by HIV/AIDS.

So today you can be sure that you DID made a difference in the life of a child.  Many children!  Now they can dream because they have goats.  Life has so many more possibilities now!  Thank you for making a difference.

Mother Gives Back

The words from a parent can be so powerful.  Annet's mother shares their story ...

"My daughter’s life depends on drugs. Annet started in the clinic in 2007.  She was diagnosed of cancer in 2008 and was started on anti-cancer drugs.  Ever since starting the drugs, she has been greatly improving and living a very normal life like any other children of her age. 

Annet is in school and I greatly appreciate what Baylor has done for my daughter.  I decided to offer a service in return to other children while telling Annet's success story.  I want to enable other caretakers and tell them I have positive hope for their children.

Drugs are the only keys I have found for my daughter's life.  I make sure that the medication is taken as prescribed and instructed by the medical personnel.  Without medicines, I believe that my child would be dead right now.  As long as medication is there, my daughter will live to testify."

This mother is one of the most active community volunteers that we have, and she is doing it as a way of giving back to the clinic for the great work that they have done in her daughter’s life.  Your donation has made this possible.  Thank you for caring, and for improving lives.
