After years of ministry among lepers in India, Drs Sujai & Lavanya Suneetha responded to God’s call to minister to those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS (India’s lowest “caste”). Under the Suneethas’ dedicated and capable leadership, Nireekshana started in June of 2004 in a small way as an out-patient based clinic in the front rooms of their home. [Seed money from CPC’s Ministry Expansion Fund was used to help launch the ministry.] Nireekshana quickly outgrew the home. Now in several satellite clinics in Hyderabad and the state of Andhra Pradesh, Nireekshana caters to the needs of thousands of individuals and families.
Nireekshana ACET (AIDS Care, Education & Treatment) is a community, Christian based organization dedicated to the compassionate care and support of people living with HIV/AIDS using a holistic approach. Nireekshana’s work is based in the medical clinics and in community outreach. It’s key work focus is on providing counseling, training, medical, socio-economic, spiritual care and support.
-That Nireekshana would truly be as the name literally means “A place of hope”.
-That the Suneethas would be strengthened in their particular leadership roles.
-That God might supply the resources (financial, dedicated personnel, facilities) to continue this ministry.
