RAISING AWARENESS & BATTLING HIV IN AFRICA!
World AIDS Day, celebrated on December 1, is an international day dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection and mourning those who have died of the disease. Every day Tree of Lives makes a difference by creating and supporting programs that strengthen the African family in our shared battle against HIV/Aids and poverty. Show support with a red ribbon for the 36.9 million people around the world living with HIV - of which 2.6 million of whom are children.

Holy Family Center
The Holy Family Center at Nazareth Hospital provides education, drug and nutrition support, and fellowship for thousands of HIV/AIDS patients. Programs like Mother to Mother work to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV through counseling and medical guidance. The Youth Mentor Program brings HIV+ teens together to build community and combat the stigmas surrounding HIV/AIDS.
The Joy Village
Opened in 2011 and located thirty minutes from Nazareth Hospital, the Joy Village provides love and support to 60 Kenyan children. Our six “mamas” each care for 8 to 12 children as part of a true Christian family. The 167 Club sponsorship program provides medical care, housing, food, clothing and education needed to give them the opportunity for a bright future that is not defined by their past.
Located on the grounds of Nazareth Hospital, the Allamano School is a Christian primary remedial school serving the children of teapickers who live on less than $2 a day. These students receive a valuable education, specialized attention, and additional school supplies and food to help them succeed. A portion of our Boxes of Love program during Christmas supports these families.
