Only 30 years ago, AIDS was a death sentence . . . a scarlet letter even. But because of greater global awareness, safety precautions, medical breakthroughs, and advocacy, millions of lives have been saved, and the end of AIDS is believed to be within reach.
However, the fight is far from over. Today, 34 million people are HIV positive—and the majority of them live in sub-Saharan Africa. In fact, AIDS is the leading cause of death for African adolescents—the majority of them having contracted the disease as infants.
It may surprise you to know that only one-third of all HIV-positive children under 15 are currently receiving treatment. What’s more, millions of children around the world are living without access to the treatment and care they need in order to live healthy, uninhibited lives.
World Help is committed to caring for poverty-stricken children with HIV/AIDS and other devastating diseases and conditions.
That’s why we began the Medical Emergency Fund, which allows us to respond immediately to the health needs of children in critical condition.
Today, on World AIDS Day, will you join us in caring for disadvantaged children and teenagers through emergency medical relief? Your contribution of any amount could save a life.
As our way of saying thank you, we will send you a small gift—handcrafted by talented artisans worldwide—that matches the value of your contribution (while supplies last).
This World AIDS Day, tell hurting children they are not a statistic . . . they are not forgotten . . . that there is healing and hope for them.
