HOPE for AIDS Ministry Team
Length of Service: Under 1 year
PRF Number: 7696
Bring the hope of Christ to those suffering from illness and HIV/AIDS. This team will work with the Home Based Care HOPE for AIDS volunteer team and will travel with the Hope for AIDS Home Based Care Coordinator. This team will work alongside the volunteers, visiting the sick in their homes, sharing encouragement from the scripture and providing practical assistance by helping with household chores, distributing soap, vitamins and other basic assistance items. Community development projects could include basic construction of buildings, repairs to widows' homes in the community and projects at the local school. HIV/AIDS prevention and education could be taught in the local school. Medical skills could be given to the community through the local clinic which currently lacks trained staff.
