The Nehemiah Project is a ministry of CPA (City Pentecostal Assembly) based in the heart of Bulawayo in Zimbabwe. It's aim is to provide care and support for people infected with or affected by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) which leads to Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).

 

Care and support for these people takes various forms. Many people living with HIV can have a normal healthy life for years but they may need help to get access to the right drug therapies and need to be taught how to take the medication. They may need support at times when they are ill as they will sometimes recover less quickly than someone without HIV.

 

A community affected by HIV and AIDS will tend to have more orphans and vulnerable children. Although children are not often infected with the virus, they are affected as parents may be sick, or one or both parents may have died. Children affected by HIV need help with physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and psychological needs and The Nehemiah Project seeks to provide this support in the communities in which it works.

 

The project's "strap line" is "rebuilding broken lives". HIV/AIDS bends and breaks the lives of those it touches; The Nehemiah Project seeks to be everything it can be to those people, providing comfort, help and support to all without prejudice or partiality, rebuilding the lives of those it can and mourning with loved ones those it cannot.
