Delivering Rose

With the help of Baptist Global Response’s Hospice Bucket program, Community Leaders and Home Health workers James and Eunice partner together with Rose, an HIV-positive woman and AIDs awareness instructor, to encourage and minister to the newly diagnosed members of their community and surrounding towns. This is the first of a series of projects produced for BGR to help tell the stories of how the Hospice Buckets are helping bring hope in sub-Saharan Africa.

Reaching Turkana refugees in Maralal, Kenya

IMG_4838Rose is a Turkana woman living in Maralal, Kenya and was diagnosed with HIV/Aids and received a BGR Hospice bucket from BGR Partners in Maralal. The vitiamins with HIV medication helped improve her health and she now passionately educates people about HIV prevention as well as living with HIV/Aids in her community. We spent much of the day talking to Rose, and then following her around to talk to other HIV positive people who also have received buckets. She loves encouraging other people! This is one of the exciting stories of hope that we are currently working on in Kenya.
