Africa Orphan Care supports and teams with existing orphan care ministries that provide care across Africa. Currently we provide support to the Newstart Children's Home in Harare, Zimbabwe, the Mukuyu Outreach orphan home on a remote region of the Zambezi River in Zambia, and Cradles of Love in Arusha, Tanzania.
In addition to orphan care, the Newstart Children's Home offers a medical clinic open to surrounding community for basic healthcare. This includes offering anti-retroviral medication to pregnant HIV patients to prevent vertical transmission of the virus to their unborn babies. Mukuyu project has a medical launch on the Zambezi River reaching villages that have no other access to medical care. Both of these facilities need both medical volunteers and continued donations of medication to function effectively.
