ASC Ethiopia is celebrating 10 years of service and has accomplished so much in that time. We are so proud of the accomplishments and have an eye towards a bright future.
ASC has signed on as an organization supporting the establishment of National African Immigrant & Refugee HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis Awareness Day (#NAIRHHA Day).
"After over thirty years of African immigration to the US, it’s time to recognize major health challenges among African communities—creating an HIV/AIDS and viral hepatitis awareness day takes us another step forward in raising awareness and linking African immigrants and refugees to free testing and treatment services," ASC Co-Executive Director Kim Nichols said.
Since beginning our partnership with New York State through the New York Rising Super Storm Sandy Recovery program this year, ASC has been sending staff into some of the hardest hit areas offering legal, health and housing assistance to immigrants currently living in, or displaced from areas affected by Superstorm Sandy.
