HIV/AIDS Care for Innocent Children
According to the World Health Organization, transmission rates are as high as 45%. In addition to inheriting a life-threatening illness, many of these same children become orphans. An estimated 17 million children have lost one or both parents because of HIV/AIDS. World Children's fund intervenes in the plight of orphans innocently affected with HIV to assure food security, shelter, access to medical care, education, economic opportunity and to shield these blameless children from discrimination and exploitation.
At World Children's Fund, we believe every child deserves a chance at life.
World Children's Fund supports more than one hundred innocent and abandoned children infected with HIV/AIDS who inherited the virus from their mothers. The children's home was founded in 1992 and the first facility in Kenya to care for HIV+ children. The children range in age from newborn to twenty-four years old.
