Laura with Tearfund (South Africa)

LauraIn February 2015, Laura headed to Pietermaritzburg to work in the orphanage run by Tabitha Ministries. She lived with the kids and worked with HIV and AIDS affected families in the nearby townships. Laura writes:

Laura writes: “6 months submerged 24/7 in Zulu speaking communities sharing God’s love in practical ways. I poured my heart and soul during this time into alleviating poverty – both spiritual and material – with a particular focus on working with communities decimated by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. It was an amazing chapter in the exciting life God has given me and I was so grateful for all of your support and prayers to help make it happen. It was an amazing experience for me, as well as making a tremendous difference in the lives of these children and many living in poverty :)”

(Tabitha is a Christian Non-Profit Organisation providing care for people affected and infected with HIV/AIDS. Based in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, they care for adults and children in the community with a major focus on Child-Headed Households – see www.tabithaministries.co.za/ for more info.)
