Independent, certified public accountants confirm this number, and at Africare we always make sure that anyone can view our audited financial statements and IRS Forms 990 online if they wish. Our financial records demonstrate, substantiate and corroborate the number in every way. But beyond being legitimate, this statistic is also a simplification. Let’s look at it more closely.
