Orphans and Vulnerable Children

Lyn's Comment: The world has become increasingly aware of HIV since the early 1980’s. The pandemic has been described as having three waves.

“In the first wave, people are infected with the virus. In the second wave, people become ill. The third wave is made up of the effects of people dying of HIV/AIDS, such as on surviving children and young people.”  (OVC Support)

In faith communities, caring for children orphaned by HIV, or children made vulnerable by the challenges of HIV should always be a priority.
