Health & Wellness Education

Crazy Love Africa takes seriously our mission to empower women.  We know that when it comes to one’s health that knowledge is power.  HIV is a chronic but manageable condition.  Our goal is to empower our sisters to manage their health well.  By providing training around HIV, stigma, nutrition, and social aspects of their health we are giving our sisters confidence in living a long, healthy life with HIV.

Medical Assistance Fund

Because of the cost of health care, many times medical procedures and prescription medicines are outside of a single mother’s budget.  Through our Crazy Love Africa Medical Assistance Fund, our sisters don’t have to sacrifice their family’s health because of the inability to pay.  Our sisters have requested help from this fund for asthma medications for their children, medications for Rheumatoid Arthritis, and surgical procedures. If you are interested in donating to our Medical Assistance Fund, you can donate directly here:
