In our community there are a high number of people living with HIV/AIDS as well as orphans who lack and need basic care. Because of this problem they suffer and die quickly.
VH-LAHA is planning to conduct a Home Basic Care Project.

Right now, our efforts are funded by financial contributions and donations from our members.
