  • TIHAN/POZ Cafe

     Tucson Interfaith HIV/AIDS Network

    Poz Cafe, TIHAN’s monthly lunch for people living with HIV, is an opportunity to get out of their house, take a break, meet other positive people, and enjoy great food! On the third Thursday of each month from 11:30am to 1:30pm, volunteers from local faith communities provide a fantastic, delicious and nutritious lunch. This is followed by time to “hang out,” chat, participate in a game or two of bingo, enjoy our raffle of fun and useful gifts, and receive a CarePackage.

            With two other faith communities, UMC of Green Valley provides money for food, prizes for bingo such as:  a new set of towels, small appliances, dog or cat food, large container of laundry detergent, or other household items.  We provide cash gifts for the raffles.  We get a designation from TIHAN for what we need to provide for the CarePackages, items not available with food stamps as toilet paper, shampoo, laundry detergent, feminine products, soap, toothpaste.  

            Also once a year five or six members of the congregation greet the guests, set the tables, serve the meal and clean-up at the end of the meal.

  • Water, Sanitation, & Hygiene Program UMCOR advance #3020600

    Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene are essential for good health and well-being. Water is used not only for drinking, but also for bathing, cooking, cleaning, waste disposal, and agriculture. Yet, 668 million people around the world do not have reliable access to clean drinking water and even more people lack access to water for agriculture and other household tasks to meet their everyday needs. What's more, 1.8 billion lack adequate toilets. The lack of access to these basic services and the education regarding healthy behaviors results in over 1,000 children a day dying from diseases, many of which are entirely preventable when WASH is addressed sand sustained at the community level. UMCOR-WASH implements projects through a network of partners in countries that have the highest levels of childhood diseases and death and least access to basic WASH services. UMCOR and its partners are working on long-term solutions that start with communities' priorities and agendas and support the change that they want to make in their lives, working alongside these communities to implement projects and learn how to manage their new assets. Partners help communities gain better access to clean water by working with them to locate and develop safe water sources, educate themselves on key hygiene behaviors, and improve appropriate and simple sanitation solutions. This work is carried out in a holistic manner that addresses the fact that all aspects of life are interrelated and so solutions and approaches must also be integrated and related. UMCOR partners are either national non-governmental organizations or local community based organizations. Through this network, partners must present project proposals on a yearly cycle to support the communities' goals in WASH and present an overview of their capacities to carryout their plans. Your support for UMCOR-WASH supports our partners' critical work!
