About Us

From Our Founder

 When Ethiopia ACT (originally AIDS Care and Treatment) started in 2002, the AIDS epidemic in Ethiopia was at its peak. ACT’s goal was to find and care for the sickest and poorest AIDS sufferers. Today, ACT continues to reach the urban poor who suffer from HIV/AIDS and other diseases like cervical cancer and tuberculosis. We long to see “the least of these” experience God’s mercy and love and to see gospel –centered churches, that love and serve the poor, planted.
