RIOT: Assembling Medical Kits for Caregivers in Swaziland, and Encouraging Them Along the Way
Saturday, April 6
1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
*R.S.V.P. Required, Refectory Hall, Dubourg 157
There are thousands of caregivers in Swaziland caring for family members and people in their communities living with AIDS. Often times these caregivers lack basic but necessary items to prolong lives, comfort the sick, protect themselves, and prevent the spread of infection (like gloves, clean water, wash cloths, etc.). This is the gap we're seeking to fill.
InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at SLU is partnering with these caregivers in Swaziland, and World Vision - and we want you to join us! We're going to fundraise for as many caregiver kits as we can. And at our event on April 6th, we're going to get together and assemble every last one of the kits we've raised money for. After that we'll send the kits to a World Vision distribution center where they will be prepared for international shipping and sent away to Swaziland.
So join us on April 6th from 1:00PM-3:00PM as we assemble kits and make a difference in the lives of others! We'll also have a brief presentation and discussion on the intersection of faith and social justice. For more information, please visit: http://aidsriotstl.wix.com/2013
