Hope is the Spark that Changes Lives

Thank youAFCA's wishlist is just another one of the ways in which you can help us to provide for the needs of children who are affected by AIDS. You will find a below a list of items that AFCA requires in support of our programs acrosee sub-Saharan Africa. If you have any of the items, please get in contact with us. :)

Unfortunately we are no longer accepting medicine bottles and we have stopped that program. Please DO NOT send us medicine bottles. If you'd like to help our organization, here's some things we need: baby blankets, baby diapers, scissors, rulers, fingernail clippers, towels, and glue sticks or anything included below. All of these are used for school and hygiene kits for kids in our programs. Thank you!

Check out our video about Florence Awour and how AFCA is helping her and others to have an education, thanks to donations of items in the school supplies list below.
