Aids kills nearly 6,000 people each day in Africa (most of them in sub-Saharan countries). Many are young adults, and in Africa alone over 11 million children have been left behind as orphans of this disease. These numbers keep growing and are clearly daunting. We need a united effort from all sides - governments, international organizations, researchers, non-profits and individuals like you and me - to help find solutions for this pandemic. Salvaging the lives of 11 million children in the world is beyond the means of any one of us, but helping just one child to have a better life is something that almost any of us in the western world can afford.
Your contribution of $25 a month will support a child in the Lake Victoria region of Tanzania. This support includes organic food, school uniforms, clothes, school and other supplies and healthcare for the orphans and their guardians.
Just $25 can make a dramatic difference in the life of one of these orphans. It can mean the difference between life in the streets, or life with a caring foster family, educational opportunities, health care and the nutritional support that all children deserve. I hope you will consider making a difference in the lives of one of these children.
