Fighting the AIDS pandemic is not about us. We like to build connections, not structures. AFCA and CFCA are distinctly connected to stable, non-governmental organizations in the countries where we work, bolstering existing networks from which continued services can be made available. We prefer not to reinvent the wheel, which keeps program costs down and program impact up.
Our partners on the ground not only know their communities, but have served them well over the years. With a deep knowledge of each country’s history and people, language and customs, these partners have the relationships and capacity to extend AFCA’s and CFCA’s programs to their people. They are known, trusted and respected and we are grateful for the opportunity to come alongside them to provide needed supplies and training to bolster the good work they already do
In 2007, we started work in Zimbabwe
2005 – Reaching Kenya & Uganda
We started work in Kenya and Uganda in 2005 providing much needed anti-retroviral medications to three hospitals.
2004 – The American Foundation for Children with AIDS is Founded
The American Foundation for Children with AIDS was founded in 2004 by Father Harold Bradley and Robert Maynard. They saw the great gap in access to free medicine for children infected by HIV and decided to act. They formed a board of directors, inviting Mary Engelking and Craig Copland to join them. Having incorporated the organization, they hired Tanya Weaver to manage the organization.
