Did you know? (33)

Did you know…1 December is World AIDS Day?  Poverty is at the root of HIV and AIDS, making people more vulnerable in many ways. In developing countries people have to pay for blood tests and drugs, and often cannot afford them. In Zambia, CAFOD funds HIV home-care where volunteers and nurses visit people in the community who are struggling to cope. They help with practical tasks like feeding the family, fetching water and cleaning as well as emotional support.  With your support we continue to bring hope to thousands.
