The Church Supports Children Affected By Aids In Togo

Charles Ayetan

In Kouvé, about 70 kilometers northeast of the Togolese capital, Lomé, Mrs. Adjovi would have found it difficult to look after herself and her five children, without financial support from the Charity Organization for Integral Development, OCDI, which is linked to Caritas in Togo.

Two of her children are living with HIV and the subsidies she receives from the association, under Caritas’ Light and Life Project, enables her to keep her business going. With that assistance, she is able to buy and sell shoes.

“With the money I make, I can take care of my family’s needs,” says the 35-year-old widow, who was infected by her former husband.

Like Mrs. Adjovi, thousands of people benefit from OCDI assistance in the form of support for an economic activity that benefits children affected by Aids, living with HIV or in need of healthcare.
