AEC Home Based Care (96253)
Reaching out with Compassion
The Africa Evangelical Church (AEC), in partnership with SIM, is bringing Christ's love to the sick and suffering of Malawi through the AEC Home Based Care Project.
In three villages, HOPE for AIDS volunteers are ministering to over 135 patients. They bring practical items such as vitamins, nutritious food, and blankets. They also offer a listening ear, counsel, and hope from the Scriptures. These acts of service have made a wide impact in entire communities. In Naotcha, the village chief has directed volunteers to more homes of the sick and encouraged them to continue their hard work.
The Malawi Home Based Care project is a way for the church to show the community that it cares for them, whether Christian or not. Through the tangible ministry of compassion, they are giving HIV/AIDS victims a longer, better quality of life, dignity in death, and healing for eternity.
You can support the work of these volunteers with your financial gift. Funds go towards
The program is about to extend to its fourth location with 40 more patients and hopes to expand into one new village per year, but they cannot do that without the financial partnership and prayers of Christians around the world.
