HIV wreaks havoc on a life and community. Patients and their families come to SIM highly unstable and vulnerable. Most were poor before the diagnosis, and the illness pushes them further into poverty. Families need long-term support. Your gift enables SIM workers to meet regularly with HIV patients and their families, perform medical assessments, minister as the hands and feet of Jesus, and bring transformation.
Hope After HIV
Everything changed for Rita and her husband, Nadesh, when in 2007 they discovered they were both HIV positive. While they’d walked alongside others who’d received this diagnosis, now the fear was their own. Unable to financially afford good health care, they struggled. It wasn’t until a few years later, when Nadesh was diagnosed with Tuberculous Meningitis, that the couple revealed their diagnosis to their daughters. After Nadesh’s death, the family fell deep into poverty. No one was willing to help. When SIM learned of the family’s situation, they began receiving food rations and medical treatment. The team now visits them regularly, providing the physical, emotional, and spiritual care they couldn’t find elsewhere.
YOU can help someone with an HIV diagnosis find practical help and hope for eternity!
When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick. —Matthew 14:14
