St. Camillus Center is a fully volunteer, grassroots, nongovernmental organization that provides home-based care for people living with AIDS and support for orphans and vulnerable children. The Center’s education programs include HIV/AIDS prevention and care, proper nutrition, sustainable agricultural techniques, and income-generating skills. Since its inception, the Center trained and continues to support 120 home-based care volunteers in 39 villages in the District of Mohale’s Hoek. Volunteers also provide advocacy and assistance for more than 600 orphans in the region. Although St. Camillus is a Catholic organization, they offer compassion and support to people of all faiths and belief systems.

We worked with Sr. Juliana and the people of the St. Camillus Centre for Orphaned and Vulnerable Children for 3 weeks, and while we were there the children made some beautiful artwork. We have used images of their cut paper flowers to make note cards and buttons in the hopes of raising money to send back to Sr. Juliana and the people of St. Camillus.
