Zambia

Witch doctors in Zambia inform those desperate to rid themselves of AIDS that having sex with a child will cure them of the disease. Over 200 cases of child rape can be reported within the first three months of any given year. For every case reported, another 10 go unmentioned. Forty percent of infants test positive for HIV that they contracted from their mothers. More than 630,000 children live as orphans due to the epidemic. AIDS and lies about the disease account for 82% of the deaths in Zambia. Poverty is so prevalent that if they don’t die of AIDS, they will die of starvation.


James 2:15-16 says, “If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, ‘Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,’ but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what [does it] profit?” Due to the commonness of sickness and poverty in Zambia, the things which are needed for the body include medicine and food. Through the generosity of partners and friends, Bridge of Hope was able to deliver $1 million in medical supplies and enough food and relief for 2,000 orphans. A breakthrough preventative drug, which greatly reduces the risk of passing the syndrome on to their children through breast milk, was also administered to 2,000 women. Because of the love of Christ resident within those who faithfully support BOH, suffering Zambians saw the love of Christ in a practical way.
