This is one of SCCPs home based clients on the left with his home based care volunteer. Early in the year he was quite sick with HIV but with SCCPs support and meds for his illness he got stronger and back to work. With a microloan of $30 and some teaching, he was able to build this great kitchen garden, which fed him and his family and made about $100 for himself. With continued success, he will be in line for a second loan of $100 next year to start another project. SCCP takes on 100 new clients a year with Willow and Bright Hope's support. We were able to train 24 great volunteers this trip how to recognize when clients were really sick and needed attention and also how to check on compliance with the meds. Lots of great things are happening in Samfya!!!
