MISSION  STATEMENT
 
An effort made in the hope and trust that the life of a whole continent will be saved , if done well and honestly , will live to be a legacy , one that tells the picture that human nature surpasses the intellectual, psycho-social, and politico-material capabilities and endeavours of other  animals and creatures of the earth, in terms of the pain, toiling and sacrifice  that one group of human species  makes in order to save the lives of persons of another  political or geographical origin.

Welcome to The Rural Child Aids Foundation of Africa home site! We are glad you could spare sometime to visit us . We  trust you will find the information available for you ,here, touching and inspiring enough to make you want to do more for humanity....the people across the river or those behind your  security fence at home.
TRUCAF AFRICA is an acronym for The Rural Child Aids Foundation of Africa. Our organization is fully incorporated in the laws of the state of Indiana as a non-profit legal entity with full benefits under the United States taxation laws. Trucaf Africa is ,currently, participating and working in some parts of the African continent particularly in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique, but we are making expansion strides into the rest of the continent. Our goal is to ensure that by 2007 we are fully and actively represented in most countries of Africa.
 
It is our pleasure to let the world know that TRUCAF Africa is  dedicated to the improvement of the welfare of Africa's children who are dying in their millions from the Aids scourge . We seek the world's attention to do more to save and serve the innocent future of this historically important continent, and we beseech you, our visitor, to join your hands with us in the fight for life by the African child. The children of Africa, like all human beings across the globe , deserve full enjoyment to life, but the majority are dying at tender ages without much peace ,let alone happiness, having been derived from the all too-short lives. Do they the deserve this fate?  No. We can work together to improve the welfare of these our brothers and sisters so they can experience a better livelihood, and in the proces we will preseve the future of the continent.
