Livestock

Congo Livestock
Congo Livestock

Elema sends thanks to the American Foundation for Children with AIDS and everyone who has supported our livestock project for the orphans in Congo.  Elema is caring for two grandchildren and was selected to receive one male and one female sheep.  They were able to breed the sheep and return two females back to the program for other families.  Elema and her family have also benefited from our seed program.  She has already harvested maise, cassava, groundnuts, cowpeas and beans. 

Thanks to your donations to support our livestock project, the family eats well.  The children, Joseph and Esther, are in school and the family is generally healthy.  They have a bright future and they understand that your financial support makes it all possible.

Please know that your generosity is truly making a difference in the lives of this family and many more in our program.  With our partners on the ground, the children and their families receive the support and monitoring they need to make this a very successful project.  We are changing lives day after day.  Elema feels your love, and so do we at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS.

Siblings Feel Your Love

Richard
Richard

Let me introduce you to Richard and Audrey, a set of siblings in our program.  Their father, Joseph, has been down for some time and is receiving treatments through our partnership.  His days are long and he feels sad that he is not able to meet the day to day needs of his children.  Joseph stuggles to find his own strength to meet the requirements of his treatments.  It's a difficult life when you are alone and caring for your children, but Joseph and his family feel your love.

Thanks to your donations to support our school fee project, Richard and Audrey are thriving in spite of Joseph's struggles.  Both siblings are doing well.  They feel good and they love school.  Richard is an active member of the junior teens support group.  He attended a workshop and was very grateful for the opportunity.  Richard is now in class 8 and Audrey is in class 5.  They have met all the school requirements and they understand your financial support makes it all possible. 

Please know that your generosity is truly making a difference in the lives of these two children and many more in our program.  With our partners on the ground, the children and their families receive the support and monitoring they need to make this a very successful project.  We are changing lives day after day.  Richard and Audrey feel your love, and do we at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS.

Gardening Success

Moyo
Moyo

What an amazing year it has been for AFCA's children, thanks to YOU! Because of YOU, thousands of children are thriving and hopeful. Because of YOU, hundreds of children had good food to eat this year. Because of YOU, hundreds of children have livestock and seeds with which to start small businesses. We don't have enough words to thank you for what you've done because it is huge...it is life changing.

Let me introduce you to 22 year-old Moyo. He is one of the gardening beneficiaries, and is the head of his family. During a recent support visit, he already had a thriving cabbage vegetable plantation which he was harvesting a bit by bit for his young siblings for relish. The secret behind the young man’s success is simply following the basic gardening skills AFCA has taught him during our workshops. For instance, the young man transplanted his cabbage simultaneously with the other beneficiaries and he is already harvesting. These days the sun is so hot in this country, and Moyo's most reliable weapon is mulch. He does not need to water every day as the mulching will preserve the much needed moisture.

As we begin a new year, we want to thank you for the donations you've made to support our work. If you are making your giving decisions, please keep us in mind so we can continue helping children in 2016 and beyond. Please share what we do with others, so they, too, can help our children. Together, we CAN make a difference.

We wish you the best year ever, full of every blessing and happiness imaginable, knowing you are a hope-giver. If you would like to learn more about AFCA and our programs, please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@AFCAids.org.
