Joyce’s new house

Although Joyce is in a difficult economic condition, she finds time to visit other PLWHA to encourage them with the word of God. She is a volunteer who is also actively involved in church activities, looking after young women spiritual welfare and sings in the praise team.

Joyce and her family had been living under very poor conditions as can be seen from the picture but with by the grace of God and direction of her church and JC and its partners (Willow Creek), a new house was built for her. Now her and her family live in a decent sanitary establishment.
