December 1 is World AIDS Day. Millions of people around the world are celebrating how far we have come in the fight against HIV and AIDS.
It is important to recognize that many hurdles have been overcome in this fight. But even more importantly on World AIDS Day, it is important to recognize that there is still so much to be done.
In Togo, treatment is out of reach of so many sick people. Life saving treatment is a luxury in Togo.
We at Hope Through Health are working tirelessly to make sure that life saving treatment for poor people is not a luxury, but an expected norm.
Thanks to your donations we have raised over $500 so far. We are so appreciative of all of our amazing donors, that join in this fight alongside our partners in Togo.
We only have $494 left to meet our goal. Please spread the word about HTH!
Please check out this wonderful article about HTH founder, Kevin Fiori's work in Togo.
This week HTH Executive Director, Jennifer Schechter and Kevin Fiori wrapped up a 6 week trip visiting all of HTH sites in northern Togo. There will be an update next week about their trip.
Thank you all for your continued support of HTH's projects.
Bienvenu was hospitalized in 2005. His future was not guaranteed. This uncertainty quieted a once vibrant young boy. He looked years younger than most boys his age andwas much smaller. Bienvenu's mother had passed away when he was very young and his father was not present in his life. From the early age of 12 years old, Bienvenu began taking care of himself. Hope Through Health found Bienvenu in the hospital and immediately provided him the support he needed with no strings attached.
Bienvenu used to walk for hours to reach medical care. Now when Bienvenu arrives his transport is covered by Hope Through Health. When he arrives he is provided medicine, nutritional supplements, medical and psychosocial consultations, a monthly support group, and childrens club all free of charge thanks to donors like you.
Bienvenu is now healthy and strong. This would not have been possible without Hope Through Health's model of comprehensive health care. His story signals hope in a country where hope is reserved for those with money. Unfortunately our work is far from finished. Every day more children test positive with HIV/AIDS. Bienvenu serves as an example of what is possible wihen a small amount of money is spent in on effective programs in an effective way.
Thank you for your continued support for Hope Through Health's Orphan and Vulnerable Children Program.
