The Balm In Gilead Joins Saddleback Church in Thanking President Bush for His Leadership on Addressing HIV and AIDS Around the World
Date:12/3/2008

RICHMOND, Va., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pernessa Seele, Founder/CEO of The Balm In Gilead, joined Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church, his wife, Kay and approximately 300 faith and community leaders at a Civic Forum on Global Health for a World AIDS Day ceremony recognizing President George W.

Over the past several years, the organization, based in both US and Tanzania, has partnered and developed the infrastructure of the national governing faith institutions -- Catholic, Protestant and Muslims -- in Tanzania to provide life-saving interventions to the people of that country. Today, because of PEPFAR funding, faith communities in Tanzania are providing care to over 50,000 orphans per year and have delivered HIV behavior change interventions to millions of persons. Last June, Tanzania's faith leaders, both Christian and Muslim, launched a national HIV testing campaign, Our Church/Mosque is Lighting the Way!! In February 2008, Mrs. Laura Bush visited one of the Balm In Gilead's Muslim PEPFAR funded programs, developed in partnership with the National
