AFnetAid works in two of the countries hardest hit by the AIDS epidemic, South Africa and Zambia. The latest statistics reveal that there are over 2 million AIDS orphans living in these countries.
We address this devastating problem by partnering with local schools and churches to identify the orphans in the community and then provide support for them through two types of programs: orphan day care centers and an orphanage.
Ithemba La Bantwana - Hope for the Children, is in Soshanguve, South Africa. Currently there are 46 orphans in our program.
Jehovah Jirah - or Nellie’s Orphanage, has 32 children living full time at this orphanage in Soshanguve.
