For several years, AIDS Care Fund has sent grants to Casa Refugio in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. This is a Christian home for children with HIV/AIDS, founded by Youth With a Mission over 20 years ago. Currently 17 children, infants to age 14, are in residence. Each receives food, shelter, and compassionate care in the home, including medical treatments, schooling, and social assistance toward adoption.


AIDS Care Fund provided a grant to support the ministries of Youth With A Mission leader John Bills. During the year he trained and challenged over 2,500 individuals (medical workers, ministers, teachers, and youth leaders) in Uganda, Australia, and the United States in AIDS prevention and suicide prevention. Most of his time last year was spent in Kurdistan, Iraq, especially in Erbil and Dihok, where he worked directly with war victims and provided emergency response training for relief workers helping refugees from Islamic State terrorists. Numerous Kurdish men were slaughtered, their wives enslaved for sex purposes, and their sons turned into murdering, plundering child soldiers. All of these war survivors are subject to despair and suicidal thoughts, and many have been exposed to HIV/AIDS. John also spent several weeks in Cyprus, staging relief responses to the massive earthquake in Nepal and the civil uprising in Ukraine.


ACF shipped a sea container of medical supplies to Centro Cristriano Poder de Dias in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico to benefit families living in extreme need. The shipment had a total fair market value of $181,000.


ACF partners with the Mike Hylton Home in Petchabun, Thailand, to care for women and children with HIV/AIDS. This is a safe haven for up to 20 residents at a time, providing shelter, food and clothing. The home’s director also gives individual counseling focusing on spiritual growth. Grants have been sent for several years.


AIDS Care Fund supported the work of Paul and Hope Phillips in Kampala, Uganda, through Hope Positive Africa. They lead an intentional residential community providing shelter and support to women and children suffering from HIV/AIDS and the social ostracism rampant throughout the nation. Their relationship-based ministry is dedicated to demonstrating the love of Jesus daily in very tangible ways, providing job training and personal counseling as well as food and shelter.
