Hope from Family in Distant Lands

Eliah
Eliah

Eliah is an 86 year old grandmother caring for 10 year old Thandweyinkosi and 3 year old Nkosilindile. This small family has benefited from our goat program. Eliah shares her words of appreciation ...

"I am comforted by this support I am getting form the people who are not my blood relatives. Their acts are healing the wounds that I and my grandchildren have been nursing for so long. They are now part of our family and their support has given us hope for the future. We received three goats from this extended family of ours in distant lands. Presently, we have six goats and one of them is pregnant. We are getting milk daily from the goats. We enjoy the milk and my three year old grandchild even drinks it fresh just after milking."

This story of hope and appreciation is made possible because of friends like you. Your donation to our goat project makes you part of Eliah's "extended family in distand lands". As you share the holidays with friends and family during this joyous season, take a moment to remember Eliah and her grandchildren. No matter how far away they may seem, you have made a difference for the future.

Emanuel is Healthy and Enjoying School

Emanuel was 11 years old when he lost his mother, and went to live with his stepmother.  Family members were not aware of Emanuel's HIV status when he arrived.  Baylor visited the home and encouraged the entire famly to seek HIV counseling and testing.  Emanuel's father refused testing for the family.  However, the family was now aware of the boy's condition and offered him support. 

It's now five years later and Emanuel is being raised by his older sister.  She has been able to help him attend his clinic appointments.  Emanuel has been faithfully taking the medicine and continues to be a healthy young man.  He is thrilled to be feeling well enough to attend school, and reports tell us he is doing well!

Your support of medicine project is priceless to children like Emanual and the family who is caring for him.  They now have hope for his future.

Tomatoes, Cabbage, Melons and More!

Edward
Edward

Thanks to your generosity, this project has been fully funded!  Let me introduce you to just a few of the children you have saved by supporting the "Seeds of Hope" project.

Edward is the eldest child in his household, caring for four siblings.  This family is now thriving with the proper training, follow up and the right type of seeds.  Edward has harvested 20 cabbage and a basin of tomatoes.  He is anxiously awaiting the harvest of eggplants, which are still in the nursery beds.  Edward has been able to purchase school materials for the children and has saved money for other necessities.  Your support has made a difference in the life of this family. 

Alice is is the eldest child of six siblings.  This family also received seeds, training and follow up attention.  Alice has harvested a basin of tomatoes.  She was able to use some to feed her family, and also sold some to help pay school fees for Caleb.  You have filled their bellies and helped provide an education!

The success stories for families go on and on, filled with hope for the future.  Would you like to hear more about our work, or find out how you can become involved?  Please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@afcaids.org for more information.  Our donors and volunteers make miracles happen each and every minute!
