Goats Among Family's Greatest Blessings

By Michelle Miller | Finance Director

Maggie is a caregiver of her two grandchildren.  Eli (age 13) and Liz (age 6) lost both of their parents to AIDS.  Grandma Maggie has lived a life full of challenges as she cared for her son and his wife and secondly, caring for their children hasn't been an easy task. 

Two years ago this sweet family received three goats.  They count these goats among their greatest blessings as they have given them three sets of twins!  This photo captured Maggie passing on the third set of twin kids to the next beneficiaries in our program.  This is a good day at AFCA, one which we also count among our blessings.

Maggie has been able to support Eli's education in one of the best secondary schools in the region.  She has been able to meet additional needs like medical care, school materials, food and medicine.  Maggie hopes the next visit we make to the area includes a visit to see Moses at school, to encourage him to read hard and become a doctor like the ones who have saved him.  We certainly look forward to meeting Eli and his family one day soon.

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.  Eli and Liz feel your love, and do we at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS.
