"Africare cares for me! Day by day I am growing..."
 Leusia, Age 5  Angola

On May 7th, Africare marks World Orphans AIDS Day with a “call to give back.”

19,000,000 children have lost one or both parents to the HIV/AIDS virus, leaving a new generation of young children to take-up the responsibilities of adulthood at alarming rates.  Astoundingly, 81% of the world’s orphan population is located in Sub-Saharan Africa.*

With your help, Africare is combating the rise of these statistics through a combination of community-led programs.

Pass on the knowledge… and make a difference today!
