Your support helps children like Jacques.

Jacques was diagnosed with HIV at just three years old. His mother, Gracia, also suffered with the disease. As he grew, she worked hard selling oranges to pay for their needs. But it wasn’t enough.

Many nights, Jacques and Gracia would go to bed with growling bellies. They also couldn’t afford the follow-up check-ups needed to ensure their HIV medications were working.

After registering Jacques into the Compassion program, the family immediately received food support and appropriate health care. Now, Jacques is a healthy 13-year-old who is facing the disease with courage and hope. And Gracia? She’s healthy too..

“It is through the support of the Compassion center that I can say that I found peace and relief.” — Gracia, Jacques’ mother
