Summary

The distribution of blankets to children infected with HIV virus will help battle the drastic cold among them,kids sleep in the cold as they do not have any cloth to cover them and keep them warm in cold nights, this exposes children to risks of acquiring cold and flu, Hypothermia which is caused by getting too cold and many more complications.

Challenge

Our project identifies these children using the vulnerability assessment method, others are referred to us from the community Health centers, these children are born with HIV.60% of these children sleep in the cold at night due to lack of warm blankets, this also causes them cold, fever and general body weakness which in most times causes death at an early age.

Solution

The project will distribute one blanket per child just to keep the kids warm, these have been identified from the vulnerable communities where we work using the vulnerability assessment tools. When children are kept in good health, they grow up happy and intelligent.

Long-Term Impact

Children are the future leaders, the next generation has to be enabled to attain their dreams, these blankets will last for over 5 years, that means that if a child is in primary seven, by the time the blanket wears out, she will have finished a tertiary course and will be able to buy their own.
