Although it doesn't get much press anymore, the AIDS epidemic in Africa has not gone away.  Parents are still dying.  Children are still being orphaned.

An AIDS orphan in Africa has a very high chance of going hungry.  Having to drop out of school.  And perhaps getting sick herself if she caught HIV during the birth.

Plenty of people in Lesotho, Southern Africa, are doing their best to help AIDS orphans and HIV-positive kids, but they need our help. 

At the Mamello School, they provide an education, free school breakfast and lunch, transport to doctors' visits, and loving care to HIV-positive children, orphans, and disabled kids alongside regular students.  Their reputation has grown so that the school now educates over 500 children!  Without our help, they run out of food for the kids at the end of the month.  

The HIV-positive children who came for care at Tsepong clinic when I worked there got excellent medical care.  But they also needed food!  More than 1/3 suffered from growth stunting due to malnutrition.  Now AIDS Orphan Care provides peanut butter to be handed out to malnourished kids at 5 pediatric HIV clinics around Lesotho!

We want AIDS orphans to have the same things we want for our own kids:

*food

*shelter

*a warm bed

*an education

*health care

*and the knowledge that someone cares.

That someone is you!  Support me with your pledge as I walk in the AIDS Orphan Care Walkathon. 

Thank you!
