Project Compassion

Project Compassion raises funds for work with families and children with HIV/AIDs. There are many ways in which these families, struggling with poverty as well as their serious health concerns, are supported.

In 2004 a little girl, Madhavi, with HIV/AIDs, whose parents had died from the disease, was brought to the ministry which housed her, and provided the drugs she needed. She is now 19 years old and has completed 11th grade. Since then many more children have been added. Now there are 52 HIV/AIDS children of various ages starting from 3 years to 19 years old. These children are orphaned and do not have a relative who is able to care for them. The numbers of these children in need have grown, so Project Compassion is now in the process of building a new home for the older boys which should be completed by the end of this year.

Madhavi, along with the other children, receives schooling as well as practical training to enable her to earn a living in the future. The cost of caring for one child is $80 per month. This cost funds their complete care including antiretroviral medications, the cost of care-givers, plus their education.

In addition, Project Compassion does outreach to families with members who have HIV/AIDs in the villages. This ministry is called “Home Based Care.” Seventy familes are provided a monthly supply of essentials like rice, lentils, oil, sugar, tamarind, soap and toothpaste. This ministry also provides a hospital which allows for pre and post natal care for mothers with HIV/AIDS and their babies.They come in once a month for a check up. The hospital is a 20 bed facility where patients also receive surgery, medicine and other care; many of these patients are too poor to pay for any kind of service.

  • By participating, you raise awareness and funds that help provide resources for this project. All proceeds raised by the the event will go directly to support this ministry.
