Meeting the challenges of HIV and disability
APRECOM is determined to change the lives of children affected by HIV or disability, in the name of Jesus.
The team’s work to support children affected by HIV includesÂ coordinating a network of support groups. At these clubs, children find fun and friendship, share one anotherâ€™s burdens and learn more about Godâ€™s love for them. The clubs bring life and hope to children who have known stigma and suffering.
The older Inshuti Nziza youth have formed a â€˜troopâ€™ thatÂ helps meet the practical needs of their community,Â rather than focusing on the problems HIV has brought to their own lives.
And APRECOM is developing a new strand to its work, serving disabled children. The team visit families with disabled children, and are setting up support groups to extend this initiative. They are also strengthening links with a specialistÂ school for children with disabilities, enhancing the school’s work, so that more children can begin to reach their God-given potential.
