Be the Change! You can make a difference in the lives of others through your giving. Caring for Korah supports the community through child sponsorship, an HIV nutrition program and our staff assess and helps to meet urgent needs in the community on an ongoing basis
There is a high prevalence of HIV in the community of Korah. Nutrition and HIV are inextricably linked. A person with HIV infection is at greater risk for malnutrition for reasons such as reduced food intake, poor absorption, chronic infections and illnesses, anorexia, diarrhea, fever, nausea, oral and esophageal infections, and anemia. The provision of nutritional support is vital to those living with HIV.
Our HIV nutrition support program seeks to ensure that individuals living with HIV have the antiretroviral medication they so desperately need while also helping to provide milk and eggs to aid in the nutrition they need while on medication.
Give now to help these children thrive.
Meet Urgent Needs
Those living in Korah are extremely vulnerable and the needs in the community are great and often critical. The area is consumed by poverty, leaving many widowed and orphaned. Illness spreads quickly due to scarce and tainted food, poor living conditions and a lack of clean water. Most who survive do so through begging, prostitution and living off of the city’s garbage dump; a place many orphans call home. Caring for Korah is reaching out into the community to meet immediate critical needs. These needs range from *dire food assistance to those struggling to feed their families to relocating families who have no home.
