A recent report by UNAIDS states that during the last two years of COVID and other global crises, progress against HIV prevention has slowed and millions of lives are at risk. In 2021, new HIV infections fell by just 3.6% the smallest drop since 2016. In Asia and the Pacific, new HIV infections are rising where they had been falling for the past 10 years.
Circle of Care
What is Safe Park? Power of Love’s COVID education/Safe Park program provides a safe place for children to play and learn. Education on COVID, HIV and malaria prevention, and PPE are provided resulting in improved physical and mental health of hundreds of children and their families. Community members are encouraged to get both shots of the COVID vaccine.
Most women enrolled in Power of Love’s micro loans program are growing their businesses and learning to become successful entrepreneurs. In addition to paying for food, medicines, school expenses for children the women enjoy a stable income, start building assets, and are more self-reliant in taking care of their health and expenses.
Dear Power of Love friend: Happy September! Malaria continues to be the leading cause of child mortality globally; and deaths due to malaria continue to be unacceptably high.
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy August!
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy July!
Malaria Prevention Plan: In Zambia, malaria season runs from October to May. In the first three months of 2022, 10,000 mosquito bed nets and education were provided in four rural and five urban areas.
With your support, 500 children living with HIV receive a comprehensive package of health care services, 230 children received funds for school expenses for 2022, and recently 75 family members of new children enrolled received training in basic nursing and hygiene.
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy June!
