Hope Ministries

Hope Ministries is the hospitals HIV/AIDS counselling service. The team go out to the surrounding villages to educate them about HIV/AIDS; providing information about how the disease is transmitted and safe sex. In the hospital they counsel patients before they are tested for the virus and then provide ongoing support for those who are infected.

They help those who suffer from AIDS to look after themselves; setting them up in self-help groups and income generating projects like rabbit breeding and fish farming. The money raised helps provide for their families after they die – these people can’t afford the expensive retroviral drugs that prolong life in the West.

AIDS has resulted in many children being orphaned. Hope keeps in touch with these orphans and tries to find ways of looking after them. The Sponsor an Orphan scheme has been set up to help support these orphans and to educate them. Further details can be found on the scheme’s website.
