Facts

Out of 38 million HIV-positive people in the world, about 23.8 million live in Africa along with 91% of HIV-positive children. More than one million children and adults die each year from HIV/AIDS. Of the adults that die, their children who are also infected are left as orphans, and are unwanted by others because they will eventually die. Many major African leaders have denied the link of HIV and AIDS along with a cultural stigma preventing people from being tested. There are also many religious factors involved as to why AIDS and HIV are being quickly transmitted between others. By donating a few dollars, you could save or lengthen a life.
