To strengthen the African family in our shared battle against HIV/AIDS and poverty.
In 2001, Drs. Richard and Judith Brown, Presbyterian missionaries and First Presbyterian Church of Norfolk members, founded the Holy Family HIV/AIDS Center on the grounds of Nazareth Hospital in Kenya. First Presbyterian Church began the Tree of Lives ministry in 2004 to support the work of this vital clinic. Since then, Tree of Lives has expanded to include other programs that support the African family through HIV/AIDS awareness. In 2020, the Tree of Lives Kenya NGO was approved by the Kenyan government. Tree of Lives and Tree of Lives Kenya will work together to further our shared battle against HIV/AIDS.
