A Time to Heal (Iaomai) Guyana

Iaomai is the Greek word for heal (referring to both physical and spiritual healing). This particular understanding of the word heal is giving rise to the title of this project: A Time to Heal. This project is focused on children who have been orphaned due to HIV/AIDS or have become otherwise vulnerable due to a life-altering disability. Through comforting care, children will be given time to talk about their life situation and find emotional and spiritual healing in the midst of great complexity.

The purpose of this project is threefold: (1) to provide supplemental critical intervention/supplies for children with nutritional, medical, or physical needs, (2) to provide times of refreshing for children as they live the best life possible, and (3) to allow comforting care as children face hospice situations.
