Serving Those with AIDS

MANNA in the Wilderness of AIDS is the true story of seven motivated people from a Presbyterian church in Philadelphia, whose modest initiative to serve food to AIDS victims transformed into a vibrant, interfaith, nonprofit organization aptly named MANNA (Metropolitan AIDS Neighborhood Nutrition Alliance) and resulted in the revitalization of their community, themselves, and their church.
