Do You Know AIDS?/ AIDS and The Church

Today is December 1st World AIDS DAY. It’s a day we remember those affected, infected and those whose lives have been lost to the Disease. Today over 40 million people carry the HIV Virus. 68% of those infected live in the sub-Saharan Africa . The World Health Organization estimates that more than 25 million people worldwide have died from this infection since the start of the epidemic. It is estimated that more than 16 million children under 18 have been orphaned by AIDS. The epidemic has caused more deaths today than all wars, famine and ravages of different disasters combined.

Churches are commanded by God to care about the sick. It is their calling! It doesn’t require money or special training to love. Local congregations are the only caring organization found in almost every community around the world.

There will never be enough healthcare professionals in the world to teach prevention, administer treatment, and offer care to those who need it. Churches have the largest volunteer labor force on the planet—more than two billion members. What an impact we can make if this enormous untapped pool of talent, energy, and compassion can be mobilized to support those infected and affected by HIV&AIDS!
