THE STORY:

Please support Ubuntu Africa through my participation in the Westchester Triathlon on September 21st. I need your help to reach my goal of raising $2,500- this money can support an HIV+ child in Ubuntu Africa's program for an entire year. So...are you with me?

My friend Whitney Johnson left her life in the States for South Africa to start Ubuntu Africa to support HIV+ children. Learn more about their work by visiting their website: www.ubafrica.org.

Ubuntu Africa (UBA) is dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of HIV positive children and teens in under-served communities in South Africa by establishing comprehensive community based programs that provide lifesaving health and support services. UBA is also committed to fostering an empowered attitude towards HIV/AIDS among young people worldwide and engaging them to participate in improving conditions for people affected by global health challenges.

UBA provides health and support services to HIV positive children and their families in Khayelitsha, the second largest township in South Africa and home to around 1 million people. Khayelitsha has high rates of HIV, crime, unemployment, and poverty. Many HIV positive people in the community lack easy access to clinics, nutritious food, and indoor plumbing, making their illness particularly difficult to manage. After being diagnosed with HIV, young people in Khayelitsha are often left to bear the burden of this disease alone. There is a great need for UBA’s HIV Care Program, which provides services designed to assist and empower the young people living with HIV.
