OUR THEMES

THEME

HIV/AIDS

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that causes AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) and for which there is no cure. Spread through bodily fluids, this virus attacks a person’s immune system. As a result, their body will struggle to fight off sickness, and often it will not respond to antibiotics. 

Children are especially vulnerable to HIV/AIDS. It is estimated that more than 2.6 million children under fifteen are currently living with HIV/AIDS. A growing body of evidence highlights that children living with or affected by HIV/AIDS are especially vulnerable to violence, abuse, neglect, and exploitation, often a reult of stigma and discrimination.

In December, Kutoa will be supporting partners who are working with people affected by HIV/AIDS. They are educating people, providing them with preventative materials and information, and offering assistance to those with this disease so that they can live the healthiest lives possible.
