Thank you for your generosity! Your gifts are strengthening our community by reducing the transmission of HIV from mother to child.

So far we have received thirty four gifts totaling $1,660! Your donations are a critical piece in our effort to improve the lives of thousands of women and children.

As a result of our work the stigma around HIV is decreasing, and discrimination among children and adolescents is on the decline. We see fewer cases of social isolation and the topic of HIV has become less of a taboo. As a result, our enrollment of young mothers continues to climb. Their care and awareness is a critical step in improving the health care for our community’s children. Healthy mothers are able to farm and start small business activities. And so these families are able to afford the transport costs to medical facilities for critical check-ups, and are able to afford school fees and healthy food for the children.

Thank you for joining our cause and for entrusting our efforts with your support!
