May 20, 2013

World Vision International is a Christian ministry that serves more than 30 million HIV/AIDS patients throughout Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Each kit contains enough nonmedical supplies -- such as latex gloves, washcloths, petroleum jelly, and soap -- to care for 25 patients. For further information on World Vision, visit
