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.
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.
Spiritual Counselor, Erick Omondi Johny
“I want to work with CFA as I know it’s a call from God. I am a victim of what AIDS does to the people." After overcoming an impoverished childhood, Erick joined CFA in 2015. He wants supporters to know, “The support is really changing people’s lives and indeed empowering many families of center staffs and even the churches are increasing in population as clients join the churches thus serving God in the way they could not serve earlier. We are able to provide for our families thus being responsible in the society.”
Judith is a business owner, mother of seven, and grandmother of eight. She works to support her entire family and has known her HIV status for years. Judith is a fighter, and she joined the CARE for AIDS program early this year. She takes comfort in her counseling sessions and in knowing that she is not alone in her journey. Judith recently accepted Christ for the first time, and she can feel a drastic change in her life since making that decision. Judith loves being part of the CARE for AIDS program and sums up her experience at Nanga center so far with one sentence: “I feel a peace now that I have never experienced."
The CARE for AIDS center in Nanga is sponsored by the generous employees of the Maxwell Group. Donate below to help support operations at Nanga center.
