CARC was established as an initiative of Murambinda Hospital in 2008 to support HIV positive children and adolescents and their families.
CARC now provides:
- Psychosocial support for 700 HIV positive children & adolescents and their families, across 6 districts in Zimbabwe
- Education for local leaders, villages and schools about HIV, reducing stigma and improving child protection
- An income generation project for 1,200 female caregivers, providing microfinance and training for chicken raising and small business development
- Training and support for 20 HIV positive adolescents to act as Community Treatment Supporters for their peers across the district.
FMH has been able to provide funding to CARC for particular needs and one of our trustees assists them with organisational development and funding applications.
