About This TripThis is an 11 Day / 10 Night mission trip to India.
This team will visit Aizawl, Mizoram.
Join Orphan Outreach in serving children and families in Northeast India in the state of Mizoram. This team will spend its time at the Gan Sabra AIDS Home and its non-residential program in Aizawl. The Home serves approximately 15 children with HIV/AIDS and has a non-residential program that serves about 60 families who have children with HIV/AIDS. Come be the hands and feet of Christ by sharing His love and grace to these sweet kids and providing support to the staff.
India is facing an accelerating threat from HIV, with more people infected with HIV than any other country in the world. The number of children in India orphaned by AIDS is approaching two million, according to UN estimates. The impacts of the AIDS crisis have not begun to emerge fully in India, and AIDS-related orphaning is not yet occurring at a large scale. Yet, India has the largest number of AIDS orphans of any country in the world. This number is expected to more than double in five years, and the proportion of orphaned children will remain exceptionally high until 2020 or 2030.
