THE STORY:

Our names are Ruben Jose Chalela and Santiago Dunn. We are seniors at Colegio Torremar in Guayaquil, Ecuador. We are leading the Mother-to-Child HIV Prevention Project in our school with the support of classmates, parents and friends.

This past summer, we had the opportunity to do an internship with Fundacion VIHDA, an NGO dedicated to preventing mother-to-child HIV infection during pregnancy and birth of babies born to HIV-positive women.

During our internship at VIHDA, we spent time in Ecuador’s largest maternity hospital, where we witnessed how VIHDA provides assistance to HIV infected pregnant women so that their babies are born free of HIV. In order to achieve this, VIHDA must conduct thousands of tests on pregnant women and provide them with the necessary medicine.

The cost for treating an HIV-infected pregnant woman, so that she can give birth to a healthy child, is approximately $550. You can make a difference with your contribution!

We urge you to make a donation to this cause so that we can raise enough funds ($1,100) to pay for the treatment to give two babies the opportunity to be born healthy and HIV-free.

Thank you for your generosity!

*******************************

Somos Rubén José Chalela y Santiago Dunn, estudiantes en el Colegio Torremar de Guayaquil.

Estamos liderando un proyecto para cubrir el costo del tratamiento y atención médica para poder salvar a dos bebés que nacerán de madres viviendo con VIH, el virus que causa el Sida, en la nueva Maternidad Alfredo Paulson de nuestra ciudad.

Este proyecto es parte de nuestra pasantía con Fundación VIHDA, institución que trabaja en prevención de transmisión madre-hijo del VIH desde 2006.

¡Gracias por tu ayuda para salvar a los bebés de esta terrible enfermedad!
