Dear Colleagues, great way to
support ICA’s
global work. Every dollar you give will be matched. 

You give on December 3 by
credit card. See below for details

HIV/AIDS: Advanced Special number 3021529:

 ICA Zimbabwe’s
HIV/AIDS project has been chosen as an Advanced Special of the United Methodist
 Church’s Board of Global
Ministries.  The Zimbabwe
project is a comprehensive community based approach to addressing HIV/AIDS. It
starts with a massive push on door-to-door testing followed by working with
HIV+ people using a program developed by Stanford University
 Medical School,
Living Well with AIDS, a 7 week program to teach self management skills. Finally,
this flows into savings/social support groups called Self-Help Groups. The Zimbabwe
project will work with 50 villages involving 500,000 people over the next 3
years. Zimbabwe
needs your support: Zimbabwe
is experiencing one of the harshest AIDS epidemics in the world. In the last decade
the population has decreased by four million, infant mortality has doubled and
the average life expectancy for women, who are particularly affected by
Zimbabwe's AIDS epidemic, is 34-the lowest anywhere in the world. Zimbabwe
has a higher number of orphans, in proportion to its population, than any other
country in the world. 

“The United Methodist Board of Global Ministries is
participating in UMC #GivingTuesday
on December 3, 2013. Gifts made online through The
Advance on UMC #GivingTuesday will be matched dollar for dollar, meaning
that 200 percent of every donation through your Advance number on December 3 will directly go to impact your ministry. This
is a great opportunity for you to reach out through your networks and let them
know about this one-day event and how it can support this important work.”
