14 Aug India Project: Home-Based Care Program
India has a population of 1.15 billion and it’s estimated that 2.3 million are currently living with HIV/AIDS. These are staggering figures. A majority of these persons come from poor homes living from what they earn on a daily basis.
The Home-Based Care program was started to help a small group of very carefully selected families from among the poorest of the poor, ranging in age from 20 to 40. They are in need of comfort, counseling, and guidance in how to live with the situation they are facing.
Currently, 65 families come once a month to receive counseling and a medical checkup. Possible admission is given if needed. A meal is provided, giving them time to share their problems with persons facing the same situation and to speak to counselors.
Gifts and donations enable us to provide monthly provisions. In addition to providing hope, we give them rice, lentils, sugar, soap, toothpaste, and tea to bring a partial measure to hope to a small family. The cost is just $20 a month for the entire family.
