What AIDS cannot do

Christian Background

Christian Background

AIDS is so limited.
It cannot cripple LOVE.
It cannot shatter HOPE.
It cannot corrode FAITH.
It cannot take away PEACE.
It cannot destroy CONFIDENCE.
It cannot kill FRIENDSHIP.
It cannot shut out MEMORIES.
It cannot silence COURAGE.
It cannot invade THE SOUL.
It cannot reduce ETERNAL LIFE.
It cannot quench THE SPIRIT.
Our greatest enemy is not disease, but DESPAIR.

Funding
Throughout the history of Acts Clinic, there have been a number of funders, for whom we are very grateful. Currently, our main funder is Right to Care, a local distributor of funds from US Aid. All funding is very strictly monitored by the auditors from Right to Care, as well as our own auditors.

Many of the smaller projects identified from time to time, still require additional funding. This makes Acts an ideal, and safe, proposition for funding from churches and other organisations.

We have years of experience in dealing with donor funds and the efficient use thereof. The fact that our overheads are already covered means that any funds donated can go straight to the purpose for which they were given.

    Good day,

    one of our staff-members has recently been diagnosed with HIV. The support he is receiving from the clinic he attends seems to be serving this group of people inadequately. A friend of mine has referred me to you for help.
    Sifiso (our employee) attended all relevant training at the clinic (I assume that this was largely counselling as well as ARV-guidelines and understanding). He has taken a huge knock in his spirit and we are noticing some weight-loss. He is a super-employee and we would like to help him as much as possible with this.
    Please would you send me more details on what you do, whether Sifiso can be supported by your network etc.

    I look forward to your reply,

    Friederike Koep

      Hi Friederike,
      I am not part of any network but just a blogger for Hazyview. I suggest you make contact with A.C.T.S. direct, and ask them for advice on your dilemma. Their telephone number is 013 751 1515.

      John T.
