Learning the Importance of Gardening

At the beginning, I can say that we worked in ignorance, in the sense that we did not give importance to the garden, sowing and the use of good seeds.  As a result, our family suffered from several deficiency diseases: diarrhea, kwashiorkor, slump and anemia.  The lack of money to support our home made life difficult for us.

I thank AFCA for providing us with tools, good seeds, animals and the water filter which have all gradually changed our daily life.  Because of our proximity to the hospital, I help the sick with my vegetables (garden) and the field income allowed us to send/dress our orphans to school, feed the family and we also bought a bike and a goat.

I salute the work of AFCA which is so commendable and request to continue this work until reaching the vulnerable of the Democratic Republic of Congo. 

Everyone here at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS, and our partners in Africa. thank you for your continued support of this important project.  If you would like to learn even more about this project and others, please contact Tanya Weaver at
