Family Africa HIV/AIDS Program has an established TB/HIV support group which imparts education, skills training and development programs.
The Mother’s Support and Counseling Centre for HIV positive mothers and their babies includes a free Day Care Centre for the children of HIV positive women. Mothers and young women receive education so that their babies have an opportunity to be born HIV negative. Family Africa also runs a full time, free-of-charge Counseling and Support Centre in conjunction with the program.
Family Africa HIV/AIDS Program also teaches mothers food gardening skills, allowing families to have access to fresh, healthy vegetables and fruit, as a means of improving their diet and keeping them healthy. Read more
