THE STORY:

Camp Kindle:  Kindling Spirits of Kids affected by HIV & AIDS

How would I feelthe moment that my doctor revealed that I had an illness for which there was no cure?

How would I perceive myself and society if wherever I went, I carried with me the most heavily politicized and stigmatized disease in the world?

How would I define life if I learned that I had HIV when I was only six, nine, twelve, or fifteen years old?

My own answers to these questions, I may never know…but in less than 2 weeks, I will be fully immersed in the stories and experiences of 100 kids affected by HIV and AIDS.  In less than 2 weeks, I will have the incredible honor of serving as a nurse assistant for Camp Kindle.

Camp Kindle is a residential summer camp offered completely free of charge to kids affected by HIV and AIDS. Through their experiences at camp, children can transcend the limitations of their disease and simply relish the freedom of being a kid. United upon one common campground, campers are able to identify with each other through their shared experiences and thus learn and grow from one another.  By thriving in an environment of support, encouragement, and acceptance, children are empowered to define themselves beyond the scope of their disease and flourish in their own sense of identity.

The UNAIDS Global Report estimated that 2.5 million children were infected with HIV in 2009. Please join me in supporting the stories and experiences of 100 of them. Thank you.

With Love and Gratitude,

Jamie de Luna, a.k.a. “Moonlight”
