Shalom Delhi (98551)
India's urban centers are critical sites for HIV and AIDS intervention. Cities are where prevalence rates are highest, epidemics get started, and where HIV is contracted and then spread to rural districts. India's capital of Delhi, adjacent to the heavily populated states of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana, experiences an influx of over 1 million permanent and seasonal migrants each year. Many are exposed to HIV and return to rural areas or other cities, thereby spreading the disease.
Showing Compassion in the Face of AIDS
SIM assists its partner, the Emmanual Hospital Association (EHA), to serve People Living with AIDS (PLWA) in Delhi and its vicinity through Shalom. Home-based care, pastor education, mobilizing church volunteers, building community awareness, and training/capacity building for community-based partner organizations are all part of Shalom's holistic strategy.
For those already infected, Shalom staff and volunteers visit homes providing social, spiritual and emotional support as well as medical support. Together with another partner organization, material support such as school fees, food and other basic necessities is provided on a needs basis. Shalom staff members also hold trainings for families and neighbors on how to properly care for those who are ill.
