Kenya HIV/AIDS Ministry
The Center partners with two primary organizations in Kenya.
1. With the Kaaga Synod of the Kenya Methodist Church, the Center supports a program reaching out to persons infected and affected by HIV and AIDS. A community based outreach in Meru, Kenya, the program reaches out to persons with home health care workers as well as a program that helps about 300 AIDS orphans. Led by Ms. Florence Murugu and supervised by Bishop William Muruki, the program is ecumencial and interfaith--a model program addressing stigma and discrimination.
In 2010 the Center has raised about $20,000 to support AIDS orphans. For $150 orphan and vulnerable children are helped to get education, nutrition, better shelter, safety, legal protection, and care.
2. The Center also seeks to support Maua Methodist Hospital, which serves a vast region of rural Kenya. In 2010 the Center is seeking to raise $23,000 in order to partner with Project C.U.R.E. so that nearly $400,000 worth of medical supplies and equipment can be shipped to Kenya. Funds are currently being received by the Center.
