While living in Chennai, India, a friend took me to visit a ministry that focuses on those who have been diagnosed as having AIDS. This ministry focuses on operating a hospice for women with AIDS - most of them are women who were poisoned with AIDS from their unfaithful husband. This created another problem, orphaned children of former AIDS infected parents no one wanted. They took care of women as they died in their arms and tried to find places for the children. It was an extremely emotionally draining ministry for all involved.
The epidemic is wide spread across India. Please click on picture to download HIV and AIDS information for India put together by www.aidsdatahub.org.
Some of our teams are focused on helping with this issue. We would like to expand our efforts, but need your support.
