What would happen if we chose to experience the story of AIDS in Africa as it occurs?
Since 2004, Global Mission has become a significant piece of the Westside Story. Since Jim Cantelon first challenged Westside with the AIDS/HIV pandemic in 2004 our partnership with Hands at Work Africa has shaped our community in far reaching ways.

Hands at Work In Africa
Hands at Work is a Christian non-profit organisation working in vulnerable communities across sub-Saharan Africa where HIV/AIDS, poverty and numbers of orphans are highest and support structures are very low. They help the local church in those communities to effectively care for the orphaned and vulnerable. Their ministry is to all those in need, regardless of race, class or religion. Westside has a strong partnership with Hands at Work providing them with prayer and financial support, sending teams and individual volunteers both short-term and long-term.
