charity to support the Mwakankomba village in Zambia, which has been devastated by HIV/AIDS. Sparrow Records have already helped to raise $50,000 for the cause, and say that the money will be used for "community development aid focused on improving basic long-term health needs. This includes providing caregivers who will work with the infected, those at risk of infection and those left behind when loved ones die
"Most importantly, AIDS prevention education for children and mentoring for orphans will be provided to encourage them to stay in school, learn how to survive and thrive as adults"
. Additional proceeds from the album will also go to an AIDS medical center in Cape Town, South Africa. The CD can be purchased now from Amazon.com
as well as most Christian retail outlets.
