Nuru is a slum community in Kisumu, Kenya. The population density combined with extreme poverty rates in the Nuru community contribute to a high HIV infection rate. This area also has the largest Muslim population in Kisumu. The CARE for AIDS center in Nuru launched in October of 2011 in partnership with Full Gospel Church of Kenya under the leadership of Pastor Joseph Opere. The current class of 75 HIV+ clients is on track to graduate in September of 2018.
