I welcome you to distribution day for our families! It is my favorite day for my job. Everyone is happy, yet cautious because they are receiving such an incredible gift. I think the responsibility weighs heavily on their shoulders. They thank us over and over again. It is a very good day!
Today, William's family stands out to me and will stay in my heart for a period of time. William is just 5 years old and lives with his aunt and uncle. He is HIV+ but is in excellent health right now. I note the sparkle in his eyes and I think he understands how important these new goats are to his family. They hold hope for many things for this family's future, including nutrition and the money for William to one day attend school. Thank you for supporting this vital project. I wish you could see for yourself how life-changing it really is for our beneficiaries.
The team here at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS thanks you for supporting this project and the work we do for the children in Africa. If you would like to learn even more about what we do or how you can meet some of the children you have helped, please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@AFCAids.org.
Nicole would like to thank AFCA for giving her a chance to be involved in the livestock program as an orphan, and for helping people in difficult situations - especially HIV/AIDS orphans. She appreciates the regular visits from the project director, and looks forward to their advice to keeping things running smoothly.
Nicole's family received sheep and vegetable seeds and they have already returned 2 sheep to the multiplication center. The corn, peanuts and cowpeas have been beneficial to their nutrition. They keep the seeds for the next season and sell the surplus, being able to purchase medical care and to pay the school fees.
This family's life is changing every day because of this program and their hard work. The team here at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS thanks you for supporting this project and the work we do for the children in Africa. As you start to make decisions regarding your end of year giving, please keep us in mind so we can continue our good work into 2019 and beyond. We wish you a new year full of many blessings and as much hope as you have shared with us. If you would like to learn even more about what we do or how you can meet some of the children you have helped, please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@AFCAids.org.
“I had received pigs, seeds and tools from the project. I worked on them and although I know a little bit of mortality from piglets at birth, but I have already returned 2 pigs to the multiplication center. In agriculture, I evolve every season, and I’m able to sell goods for schooling of children, medical care and family goods.”
William was selected to be a beneficiary of our livestock program in 2016. He thanks AFCA for the generous and commendable work it provides to the vulnerable, doing much for the many who are still suffering her in the DR Congo. William also extends his appreciation to the project director for his regular presence among them by giving technical advice for the advance of activities.
Our partner reports that he is seeing improvements in living standards, the family is eating, getting dressed, and children are going to school.
