Greetings from Uganda! As I write to you, I find our beneficiaries are very optimistic and have high hopes of benefiting from the project because 33 goats have given birth and the kids are still surviving. The project has raised the hopes and increased commitment of caregivers towards poverty eradication. It has increased on experience sharing on treatment and adherence practices for those with adherence challenges among care givers who are the beneficiaries, and this has greatly improved general adherence and proper drugs consumption among the members.
Families appreciate the project so much for it has caused a tremendous change in their lives as it has improved their wellbeing in terms of income and nutrition. Positive changes are being seen every day. Most importantly, our children are healthier and they are able to attend school on a regular schedule.
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.
Manny and his family are AFCA beneficiaries, and we love to hear from them! They received 3 female pigs and one male. In addition, they received seeds for planting.
When we first met Manny, he was at a loss for which way to turn. He wasn't able to properly feed his children, much less send them to school. Jeffery, the oldest was starving for food and for knowledge. Then they were approved for our livestock and agriculture projects, and everything changed.
‘’I am very grateful for the support I have gotten from AFCA project. I was given 3 female and 1 male pigs and planting seeds. When my pigs give birth I will sell the piglets and get school fees for my children." Manny is very determined to move forward with his pig project and provide for his family on all the basic essentials of life. Your generosity has been life-changing for Manny and his family.
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 tweaver@AFCAids.org.
‘’I am very happy with Baylor Uganda for the support they have extended to my family under the AFCA project. I was given seeds in the form of ground nuts and maize for planting and also given some agronomic training. As I talk, now I am expecting to harvest some produce out of the seeds that I was given’’
Anna's family is one of many in our projects in Uganda. Their life was filled with despair and illness and hunger. Now they have hope in their hearts as they learn about gardens and livestock. They feel healthier, and proud to take care care of something of their own.
Anna was given three female goats, and two have given birth to four kids which brings the number of her goats to seven. She has been visited and supported, according to our requirements. The family is able to handle the day to day care of the goats, which brings great pride. Our partners at Baylor Uganda are there to answer questions and guide them through breeding and vaccinations.
‘’I feel I have no words to use in thanking Baylor and AFCA because the support extended to my family is very much. This is because they found me in a very worrying situation as a widow and always very sickly, looking after my two children was not easy. With the AFCA project I feel my family will be alright’’
Anna believes she can use the benefits from the AFCA agriculture and livestock projects to educate her children and properly provide for her family. And we're here to help her every step of the way! 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.
