BENEFITING: Generation Ubuntu
EVENT DATE: Dec 01, 2013
We have committed to becoming Ambassadors for an awesome charity called Ubuntu Africa leading up to World AIDS Day this December 1st and we need your help!
Last summer, we had the opportunity and privilege to visit the Ubuntu facilities in a township named Khayelitsha and then join 80 HIV+ teens for a few days at an adventure camp a couple of hours outside of Cape Town, South Africa. For some of these kids, it was the first time they had ever even left their township, and for basically all of them it was their first time to experience the great outdoors at a sleepover camp. We had so much fun with the kids during great activities such as kayaking, rock climbing and games, as well as what seemed like nonstop singing and dancing. We've posted a few pics from this trip, as well as a very brief video of the incredible welcome we received on arrival....these kids are so amazing!
Ubuntu provides comprehensive care to 200 HIV+ children in Khayelitsha, one of the most impoverished townships outside of Cape Town. Their focus is on health and nutrition, psycho social support, HIV and life skills, education and community support. But most importantly, they provide love, personalized care and create a home away from home for children who need it most.
We really connected with these kids so we have committed to help raise funds and awareness for Ubuntu leading up to World AIDS Day on December 1st and we would love to have you join us. Please donate anything you can.....even just $10 or $20 will make a huge difference in the lives of these children. Thanks so much for your support!
