The road ahead of many parents living with HIV and AIDS is bleak. The life of Michael and his family was cloudy, dark and unpromising. Michael, understanding that his time was short, lost hope in his future. CARE for AIDS worked with Michael, educating him on the choices he had before him. They showed him that there were paths to a brighter future and gave him hope. Hope not only for him to survive, but to live long enough to see his children and grandchildren grow up.
As Michael says, “When one gets hope, you have strength even to face tomorrow.”
CARE for AIDS’ clients face extreme poverty. Because of this, they rarely take part in Kenya’s national health insurance system. However, this insurance can help with medical issues faced by individuals with HIV. When you buy three bags of Cozzee coffee, you will help CARE for AIDS enroll HIV+ parents like Michael in Kenya’s national health insurance system by paying their premium for three months. During that time, clients will receive the physical, spiritual, social, emotional and economic support they need, positioning them to take on the monthly payments themselves.
