In 2003, a woman with AIDS, seven months pregnant and living in a bus terminal in Lusaka, Zambia was found by the good sisters of Kasisi Children's Home. After delivering the baby, Tim Meade, M.D. and a team of volunteers took turns bringing warm formula to the child. Unable to care for her newborn son, the mother asked "Dr. Tim" to take care of the baby. As a sign of gratitude, she named the baby Tim.
It was Tiny Tim’s story that inspired friends and family around the globe to get involved.
Congratulations Melissa and Martin!
This amazing couple, in liew of wedding presents, asked their guests to consider making a donation to Tiny Tim and Friends.
As a result, over $1,800 was donated to TT&F by their guests!
A gift of this amount enables TT&F to:
-Pay for one social worker to support our programs for an entire year; or
-Fund 22 children to receive medical care and support through the TT&F clinic; or
- Run 10 community outreaches, testing and identifying HIV+ individuals.
Thank you Melissa and Martin for your generosity!
