HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care in Red Light Area (Pusad, India)
About the project
About a kilometer down the road from the Nazarene church in Pusad, India, you will find a red light area where women are prostituted and exploited day in and day out. The HIV/AIDS rate there is high, yet most victims aren’t being treated for their disease and many are dying as a result. A combination of stigma, discrimination, poverty, and lack of education keeps sex workers from accessing health care. While others in the community are turning a blind eye, the Church of the Nazarene is working to care for women in the red light area.
The church is working to care for victims in these ways:
1) Prevention: Education and awareness campaigns, home visits, and hygiene education
2) Care: Providing medical check-ups, counseling, referrals and transportation to hospitals
3) Rehabilitation: Working with families to ensure children are in school, working with women to find new opportunities for employment
Throughout each step, the church is sharing the love and hope of Christ.
You can help. By supporting the HIV/AIDS Prevention and Rehabilitation project, you, too, will be sharing the love of Christ and walking alongside women in need of hope.
