The term "Dunga" refers to the westernmost section of the Nyalenda slum, which stretches along the Southern border of Kisumu. The Nanga community is located in the Dunga section of Kisumu, and is closest to Lake Victoria. This community has a similar composition to the areas served by the Central and Nyalenda centers. Because there is little education and healthcare for people living with HIV/AIDS, many men and women have died and left children behind as orphans.
Nanga Medical Counselor, Rodah Namuye Nyamilowa: Rodah grew up as a partial orphan struggling to sustain the family. Today she and her husband, Moses, have two children. She joined the CARE for AIDS team in 2015 with the hope of changing the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS. Her greatest desire is for her clients to know God.
Nanga Spiritual Counselor, Erick Omondi Johny: “I grew up in Kisumu county, a slum called Nyalinda. Me and my family were very poor, not able to even get our daily basic needs leave alone education." He joined the CARE for AIDS team in 2016 and is passionate about his work. “I want to work with CARE for AIDS as I know it’s a call from God and I am a victim of what AIDS does to the people as I lost my relative due to AIDS."
