care for aids
CARE for AIDS exists to empower people to live a life beyond AIDS.
CARE for AIDS has created an innovative model of care that engages local leaders, churches, and communities in caring for families affected by HIV/AIDS. We believe in a holistic model of care that addresses complex needs— body + soul.
CARE for AIDS operates centers in multiple communities throughout East Africa, and each center is located within a local church. Each center has two counselors who guide a class of 80 clients at a time through a nine-month program. Throughout the program these clients experience transformation in five key areas; physical, emotional, social, economic, and spiritual.
