Project A2 – Aiding AIDS
AIDS is now second only to the Black Death as the largest epidemic in history. AIDS kills over 1.5 million people a year, or about one person every 20 seconds. This death toll includes a lot of children, who are often infected with the HIV virus during pregnancy or through breast-feeding. The toll is worst in Africa, where millions of parents have died, leaving children as orphans. Often teachers have died as well, leaving schools empty. Doctors and nurses have died, leaving hospitals and medical clinics with nothing. Farmers have died, leaving crops in the fields. Entire villages have been devastated. Project A2 – Aiding AIDS is a project sponsored by the Interview Girl Foundation raising money to provide medicine for orphans suffering from HIV/AIDS without access to medication in Africa. By sharing a story, you’ll be helping to eliminate the misery that someone experiences (HIV/AIDS). Your story will help Project A2 – Aiding AIDS.
