Chanika Center

The CARE for AIDS center in the Chanika community launched in October 2017. Chanika is a densely populated slum in the outskirts of Dar es Salaam with a high HIV infection rate. Stigma related to HIV/AIDS is strong in the community, and many HIV+ community members live in fear of losing their jobs and families because of their status. 


The CARE for AIDS center in Chanika operates in partnership with Power of God Church (pictured to the left) under the leadership of Pastor Dunkan Ludovic Rweikila and center counselors Happiness Gawaya and Emmanuel Kimati.
