Children grieving for dying or dead parents can be stigmatised by association with AIDS. This leads to shame, fear, and rejection. We provide essential counselling to all the children we support and show them that they are, and always will be, a valuable member of society.
Children who are born HIV+ have many added dangers to their health and wellbeing. Without early diagnosis and treatment 80% will die before their 5th birthday. We ensure that every HIV+ child under our care gets access to the essential lifesaving medication, counselling and support they need whilst living as normal a life as possible.
