Raheli, 27, and her children no longer live in this home in Machame, in Tanzania's Kilimanjaro region. Raheli, a widow, is HIV-positive and the house was compromising her health.
She received a new home courtesy of "Houses for Health," a partnership between the ELCA Nebraska Synod, Alegent Health (an ELCA and Roman Catholic-affiliated health system in Omaha), and her community. The program provides safe housing for those with severe health challenges such as HIV or tuberculosis.
