About AIAIA

We come as a family to make a connection,
person to person, arm in arm.

Our Mission “We come as a family to make a connection, person to person, arm in arm and along the way to share our lives. It is our honor to improve the conditions and create opportunities for changing the cycle of poverty and disease in South Africa.”

In the fall of 2000, Rev. James Cassidy and Pat Murphy of Minneapolis, MN, with members of a small delegation made their first trip to the townships of Cape Town, South Africa to meet Rev. Spiwo Xapile from the JL Zwane Memorial Centre, a Presbyterian community.
