Hope and help for children affected by HIV/AIDS

Late last week, CLWR Board Treasurer Gene Blishen and Executive Director Robert Granke were in South Africa, where they met with the governing board that oversees a program for children orphaned by HIV/AIDS. This CLWR-supported project is run by the the Lutheran Communion in Southern Africa (LUCSA). It was a joy for them to see the education and home-based care offered by social workers and a dedicated team who are making life more bearable for victims and working tirelessly to prevent the further spread of this disease.
