Change for Life is a new way to bring hope to those suffering from the AIDS crisis, one of the most severe health problems the world has ever faced.

When you get involved with Change for Life, Food for the Hungry will provide your church, Sunday School class, workplace or other group with small containers to collect spare coins for six weeks. As the containers fill up, the accumulation of pocket change will fund the programs that Kim discussed on today’s episode. Get started here.

  1. Wendy, it struck me in Kim’s comments how important it is that we need committed Christian PEOPLE working to conquer HIV/AIDS. Claire in Haiti wasn’t turned around by a program, she was turned around because a human being cared. Anti-retrovirals are helpful but they can’t “be Jesus” to someone. Thanks to you and Kim for this insightful interview.
