Death in the Slums: Ministering to Kenya’s AIDS Patients
30 January 2006

In the slums of Kenya, AIDS is taking a terrible toll. But a small band of Christians is giving help and hope to these victims.

This story was sent to us by The Bible Society of New South Wales. They are reporting from the front lines in Nairobi, Kenya.

At first glance, Nairobi's skyline looks like any western city, especially at sunset.

But the slums of Nairobi are not far away.

The residents of these slums live without water, sewage, or power—and often right next to great wealth.

These slums are home to 1.5-million people – 30 percent of whom are infected with HIV-AIDS.

It is in places like this that The Bible Society of New South Wales funds home-based health care programs for those dying of AIDS.

Their program is coordinated by Beth Mguma, who works for the ministry African Enterprise In Kenya.

Each AIDS patient is visited at least every two days, by two home-based care workers who provide basic nursing care.

To date, The Bible Society's project has trained 120 home-based care workers. They care for 1,200 AIDS patients, all of whom live in one of Nairobi's seven slum areas.

In the majority of cases, this is the only care people like Beatrice will receive.

These home-care visits can last up to an hour. But, before the workers leave, the patient's needs are brought before God in prayer. Eighty percent of the AIDS patients cared-for under this program have made confessions of faith in Christ.

The program can offer them little hope for this world, but by bringing them God's Words—through the Bible—it offers them an eternal hope.
