Waithaka is a large, densely populated slum in Nairobi with a high HIV/AIDS infection rate. The CARE for AIDS center in Waithaka opened in January of 2014, and the program has been met with excitement from church leaders and community members. Our partner church is called Redeemed Gospel Church, led by Rev. Kariuki.
