BENEFITING: HEART FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jul 21, 2012
AHOPE for Children is the only place in all of Ethiopia that cares exclusively for HIV+ children. It began as a hospice, a place for young kids with no family and no hope for a future, before HIV drugs were available to anyone in Africa. It was a death sentence and the best that could be done for them was to make their lives better for the moment.
The orphanage has since acquired medication for the children and now is looking at long term care. The children at AHOPE have a future and need education and spiritual and cultural support. There is a huge need for financial and volunteer support for the 95 children living there.
This summer, in August I will be going to AHOPE to volunteer my time and medical experience to help the children. A list of what AHOPE needs can be found here: http://www.ahopeforchildren.org/2012_supplies/. I will bring as much with me as i can fit in the two check bags, the rest will go as a monatary donation to the orphanage.
Please donate and help children in need. And pass the word along: AHOPE for Children Ethiopia needs you.
