Helping Children

Helping children who have been orphaned by parents with HIV/AIDS is our sole mission. A tidal wave of death is sweeping across Africa. HIV/AIDS is destroying nations, communities and families; the children are the most vulnerable. Every 14 seconds a child is orphaned by a merciless disease that could claim the parents of over 20 million children by 2010. Only a united Christian effort can turn the tide. The Mission of Stand for Africa is to turn ignorance into awareness; indifference into compassion; and despair into hope. HIV/AIDS could kill a continent and the dreams of a generation... but NOT if we Stand for Africa and stand for the children affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa .

It may seem odd, a bit absurd
To omit the name, that strange 'C' word

GRACE FOLLOWED ME THERE

My appetites were not really perverted Food and water with no cupboards bare
But my hunger took me to bad places
And yet God’s grace followed me there

PILE OF DIRT
PIECE OF DUNG

This pile of dirt felt pleased This piece of dung felt proud That’s why I kept my mouth shut I’d not praise God out loud

NO SPIT IN THE SOUP!
