HIV and AIDS are on the rise in Nepal, due mostly to fear and ignorance. Studies indicate that more than 80% of the HIV-infected people in Nepal are yet undiagnosed. Along with other INGO's and NGO's attempting to address this tragedy, Nepal Youth Foundation is doing what we can, on a very limited budget, to help alleviate the terrible suffering that comes to the afflicted. In NYF's case, at our New Life Center, we direct our help to the children, providing care and education that can ensure a long and healthy life, free of the disease progressing into AIDS.
With your help, the New Life Center has been able to provide excellent lifesaving treatment to children with HIV/AIDS, while teaching their caretakers to live hygienically and cook nutritious meals. This is the only facility in Nepal that treats HIV/AIDS with a holistic approach.
And, now, next Wednesday, March 14 ONLY...
... because we appreciate every dollar you have given to support our program, NYF is thrilled to invite you to participate in GlobalGiving’s Bonus Day event.
Wednesday, March 14, 2012, GlobalGiving.org will match 30% for every dollar you donate! $50,000 in matching funds are available, but only on March 14. This 30% matching offer begins right after the stroke of midnight, March 13, and runs only until the $50,000 is claimed. Once the funds are used, no more matching funds will be applied.
Add even greater value to the gifts you give NYF. Mark your calendars for NEXT Wednesday, March 14, 2012.
And, GlobalGiving will make this 30% match for single contributions up to $1,000! That’s $1,300 value for a $1,000 donation.
At NYF's New Life Center, a $1,000 donation would normally provide food for 17 HIV/AIDS-infected children and their caregivers, while the child's health is being stabilized and the parent is trained in proper care. However, next Wednesday, that same $1,000 donation becomes $1,300 and can supply the same benefits to 23 children and their caregivers.
Please consider giving your intended donation on Wednesday March 14, 2012, when its value will be 30% greater than the marvelous gift it always is. Thank you again for your support of the Nepal Youth Foundation. Namaste!
