Q. How is AIDS awareness, prevention, understanding etc part of your project?

The ministry now works with other stakeholders to reduce the stigma so that people can support vulnerable children and widows and take advantage of the available resources.
Q. How would your Christian beliefs influence what you do? How are they visible at your project?
A. The Community has understood that it is through God and prayer that they are seeing the fruits in their community. Although the gospel has been presented through the pulpit and possibly crusades, we feel our approach through charitable activities has greatly contributed to getting Christ known in the communities where we work.
