The Kiambiu slum is located in the Eastern part of Nairobi and neighbors the Kariobangi community. There is an estimated population of 60,000 residents and a majority of the households lack access to clean water and sanitation services. There are very few employment opportunities around Kiambiu and there is a high rate of HIV in this community, particularly among young women. The CARE for AIDS center in Kiambiu operates in partnership with A.I.C. (African Inland Church) Kiambiu.

Anne started with CFA in 2017. She is married to Daniel and together they have two young children. She tells us, "I grew up in Dandora, a place where all the waste from Nairobi city is dumped. Life has not always been smooth. I was surrounded by filth & crime but God kept me and preserved me.” Her favorite part of this job is to see the outcast clients reintegrated. "I love to see the children of these clients happy because their mom is no longer bedridden.”
