Matthew 25 House

"Whatsoever you do for the least of my brothers and sisters you do unto Me."  Matthew 25:45

The Matthew 25 House is the first HIV/AIDS care, education and hospice center in Ghana.  It is a Non-Government Organization (NGO) that provides care and support for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIV) and Orphans and Other Vulnerable Children (OVC).

The House was founded by Monsignor Alex Bobby Benson in 1998 and has grown from eight (8) resident PLHIV to over seventy (70) and growing.

Affected persons are given regular medical screenings, psychosocial counseling, care, food, supplements and training in income-producing work.  The children are given supplies for school such as books, fees, transportation, clothes and shoes.

In addition to services for PLHIV and OVC, the House has a meal program which serves from 200 to 1,000 persons once per month depending on available funds.  People in need come for the kind of support that only a community can give such as fellowship, group activities and dignity.

Matthew 25 House teaches income generating skills to its residents such as batik fabric dying, charcoal  and palm oil production and simple farming.  Interest-free loans are provided to patients who are able to begin their own self-supporting work.
