Man on Edge of Death Restored to Health

Samfya, Zambia — On the edge of death, Mr. Mutashala was brought in a wheelbarrow by a friend to the Samfya Community of Care Providers clinic in May. Weighing a startling 77 pounds, he was suffering the devastating effects from HIV. Thanks to our food support program in Samfya, Zambia, Mr. Mutashala now weighs 115 pounds and is back to restored health.

 

He told our Zambia Partnership Developers: "I am so thankful for what they have done for me. My relatives lost hope in me because they were only waiting to hear that I died. I faced rejection from them. Now they are surprised to see that I can walk, run and manage my small business to live on my own! THANK YOU. If not for you, I would have died."
