IBCM have been working in Salvador for 18 years and they focus on preventive work and aid to impoverished people. Many who live with HIV/AIDS. IBCM currently carry out the following work, but hope with our support to help many more people:
- Aid to 15 families with HIV/AIDS that used to live on the streets and are now on houses rented and totally maintained by the institution. The funds to pay the rents are provided by family members, friends and and sponsors. Without these houses the families would be living on the streets.
- Aid to 40 children, ageing from 2 to 6 years who have HIV/AIDS. Residential and drop in nursery which provides individual treatment plans, medical care as well as education & fun!.
- Weekly club with up to 80 street children, including breakfast, lunch, educational activities, social assistance and medical checking (see The Wednesday Club)
