Helping AIDS victims in Zambia

By November 14, 2007

International (WVI/MNN) — Thousands of AIDS Caregiver kits are being assembled today in the state of Washington. 

In one of the largest kit assemblies in the nation, over $200,000 dollars is being raised for this campaign through World Vision

Teams are meeting at Pine Lake Covenant Church on the Sammamish Plateau in Seattle where they will assemble 6500 kits containing anti-bacterial soap, petroleum jelly, anti-fungal cream, cotton balls, latex gloves, washcloths and other basic supplies.

The kits will be delivered to Zambia where they will be used by AIDS caregivers to help improve the quality of life for those living with HIV/AIDS. 

AIDS prevalence in Zambia is among the highest in the world. More than 12 million children under the age of 18 have lost a parent to HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa alone.

Each kit costs just $25 to put together. Click here if you want to help.
