Assembly in Malawi. During this visit, the Providence Industrial Mission was provided with
the keys to a new van, purchased by the Woman's Auxiliary, Dr. Hugh Dell Gatewood, President. The van was needed for daily transportation.

S. Willie Layton Hospital
Your Foreign Mission Board is working hard to help fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic through our S. Willie Layton Hospital in Malawi. The HIV / AIDS epidemic has stricken Africa more severely than any other continent in the world. Approximately 800,000 people are living with HIV/AIDS in Malawi! The AIDS crisis is causing children to be left without parents, without resources and without hope.
• By the year 2010, there will be an estimated 106 million orphans worldwide
• Approximately one quarter will be orphaned due to AIDS
• Africa has the highest proportion of orphans – 12%
• The number of orphans in Africa is expected to increase from 34 million to 42 million in the years to come
