This project is part of a CIDA agreement. For every $1 you give, CIDA provide an additional $3 so your $1 is multiplied to $4!

Medan Addis Ababa ACTS is a joint Kale Heywet Church and SIM strategy in Ethiopia.

Medan is an Amharic word for 'Saving the Generation' and ACTS is an acronym for AIDS Control, Treatment and Support.

In a neglected slum area in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, there is very little support for people with HIV, even though the infection rate is almost 12%.

SIM through the Ethiopian Kale Heywet Church (EKHC) and the Government of Canada (CIDA) is responding with:
free HIV testing
home-based care
medical support
health awareness

This project is breaking down the silence surrounding HIV and provides essential care to the most vulnerable in the community.
