Thanks and happy holidays

The Power of Love team would like to wish you a happy holiday season and express thanks for your caring, encouragement, and support throughout the year. 2016 was an extraordinary year. With your help, we could provide 2000 insecticide treated nets and education on malaria prevention benefitting 4000 adults or 8000 children as each net can sleep up to four young children or two adults. Over the last six years, we are seeing a reduction in the incidence of malaria and zero deaths due to malaria in our community. In addition, with better health the children can attend school and live close to normal lives.

Plans for 2017: We are planning to provide 5000 long lasting insecticide treated nets and education on prevention of malaria benefitting around 20,000 children or 10,000 adults next year. This will reduce the incidence of malaria, keep children healthy, and strengthen communities. 

Please take a moment to treat yourself to this short video, that showcases two little girls learning to dance with older kids. We are sure this video will brighten your day.

Sending you a giant wave of love and a joyful holiday season.

The Power of Love team would like to wish you a happy holiday season and express thanks for your caring, encouragement, and support throughout the year. 2016 was an extraordinary year for families in our pediatric HIV care program. Here are some key achievements:

  • Added 100 HIV+ children bringing the total number of children in our care to 350. At the time of enrollment, the new children were quite sick – many were malnourished and their immune system was weak (measured by CD4 counts). Our Nurse and community health workers created a customized health plan for each child, and worked diligently to stabilize their health. Today, most children have improved in health as measured by an increase in weight, and higher CD4 counts.
  • Zero new HIV infections: In 2016, (as in the past six years) 100% of children born to HIV+ moms were HIV free even though they have HIV+ siblings.
  • More than 240 family members came forward for voluntary counseling and testing for HIV. This is critical in the prevention and spread of HIV.
  • All 350 families in our program are more knowledgeable about HIV prevention and care, so they can take better care of their children and other sick family members.

These outcomes have led to less discrimination, reduced stigma, and a more self-reliant and stronger community. A big thank you! We could not have achieved any of this without your support. 

Plans for 2017: We are raising funds to add 100 HIV+ children bringing the total number of children in our care to 450. All children will receive food, medicines and a package of life saving health care services that include weekly health visits, psychosocial counseling, education in prevention of HIV, and training and monitoring in adherence to ARV medication. In addition, family members will receive training in HIV care and prevention so that the child is under the care of a trained caregiver 24/7.

Sending you a giant wave of love and best wishes for a joyful holiday season.

The Power of Love team would like to wish you a happy holiday season and express thanks for your caring, encouragement, and support throughout the year. 2016 was an extraordinary year for families in our micro loans program. With your help, we could provide business training and loans to 150 first time women entrepreneurs who completed business training and started businesses. Today, we have more than 600 businesses operating successfully in the community. Loan recipients have seen a marked improvement in the diet and health of their families, are able to keep children in school, and have built strong relationships and partnerships with others in the community. In addition to providing a source of income to business owners, these businesses provide convenience as community residents can make purchases in smaller quantities closer to home. In addition, residents have an opportunity to sample new products since many businesses, such as hair salons, are new to the community. These outcomes have led to a community that is better informed about HIV care and prevention, is more self-reliant, and stronger than before.    

Plans for 2017: With your continued support, we would like to provide an additional 100 new loans and business training to first time women entrepreneurs in Zambia. This will bring the total number of active loans to 472 benefitting more than 3,400 people directly and an equal number indirectly.

Sending you a giant wave of love and best wishes for a joyful holiday season.
