MISSION CAPSULES: The Presbyerian Church in Canada, through PWS&D supports HIV and AIDS programs that fight stigma and discrimination, teach and equip people to prevent the spread and the transmission between mother and child and provide home based care and medications to those living with the disease. In Malawi, Shadreck was afraid to disclose his diagnosis to his family, so he neglected to take his medication. His health deteriorated quickly.
