[ePrayer – Pray for HIV affected children in Zimbabwe]
Praise the Lord, CEDAR has supported partner FACT’s child sponsorship over 10 years. 16 youth completed secondary school level, 7 have studied at polytechnic or vocational colleges, 4 are in universities. Partner has carried out SAVE model (‘S’ stands for safer sexual practices; ‘A’ stands for access to treatment; ‘V’ is voluntary testing and counselling services; ‘E’ focuses on empowerment) in combating AIDS for several years. Give thanks that the model has gradually got more affirmation among church leaders. However, the church support for HIV-infected/affected kids in some areas still need to increase. FACT needs to co-ordinate with the local churches there and will recruit 15 care-givers.
Pray for HIV affected children in Zimbabwe:
- Thank God for the partnership between FACT and CEDAR to serve those HIV affected children and families in Zimbabwe for years, and that the children grow well;
- Pray for God’s guidance and provision to partner’s ministry in different districts. Pray that more churches will respond and support to the need of HIV affected children and families.
