Partnering with World Vision International, approximately 200 parishioners of South Shores Church in Dana Point, Calif., worked together to package 1,400 kits for caregivers working with HIV/AIDS patients in Swaziland. World Vision International is a Christian ministry that serves more than 30 million HIV/AIDS patients throughout Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Each kit contains enough nonmedical supplies—such as latex gloves, washcloths, petroleum jelly, and soap—to care for 25 patients. For further information on World Vision, visit www.wvi.org.
