We are pleased to share with you that the My Living Positively Handbook for HIV infected and affected children has had continued impact into 2013.
In the months of January and February 2013 we have distributed a total of 401 Handbooks for children and 421 Guides for adults. These went to 7 provinces in South Africa including Mpumalanga, Free State, Limpopo, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, and Western Cape. These have been specifically distributed into rural areas to provide a valuable resource for children and adults for understanding their HIV treatment, and dealing with the stigma they experience. Often this handbook is the first book a child or household owns, and therefore has a huge impact in assisting children and their caregivers to understand HIV and provides the tools needed to help cope with its effects.
We would like to thank you for your continued support of this project as your contributions truly have a lasting impact on the wellbeing of children in South Africa.
If you have not done so already, please consider also supporting our newly launched Campaign aimed at preventing HIV transmission to new born babies.
