"Africare comforts the poor man;

Africare never puts out the fire which vacillates;

Africare listens to the widow and to the orphan;

Africare straightens the tree which withers;

Africare holds out a hand to the afflicted;

Africare restores the smile of those hurt;

And if Africare was a physical person, we would have demanded its inscription in the cannon of the saints.


Africare has taken the major concerns of the population as its personal priority... We cannot say that Africare has neutralized food insecurity. However, we can assert frankly that it has drastically reduced poverty in the population of Zondoma."
