Income-Generating Ventures Provide for the Sick

Samfya, Zambia — Care Providers from Samfya Community of Care Providers are sharing the love of Christ through home visits to those affected by HIV/AIDS.

This year, grants were given to churches for small income-generating ventures that would help the church provide for the ill. The Church of God Care Providers chose to begin raising broiler chickens from their grant. With profits from their first batch, they bought food for 14 vulnerable church members and provided soap for 30 people.

Our Partnership Developers in Zambia asked us to pray for the Care Providers, as "the work they do is emotionally draining and many are feeling the effects."
