HIV Test & Treatment for a Child

Gives anti-retroviral treatments for 1 child
Gift Description:
$50 provides children with vital tests to identify and manage HIV, including antiretroviral treatment, nutritional support and counseling to a child or caregiver affected by AIDS. Every day, more than 1,000 children are infected with HIV. No longer an automatic death sentence, HIV can be managed using antiretroviral therapy (ART). Compassion also serves thousands of children who themselves are not infected, yet their lives and well-being are impacted by HIV infection within their families. Your gift will help by preventing new infections, treating infected children and families, and caring for those whose lives are indirectly affected by the pandemic.

Compassion International is a child-advocacy ministry that pairs compassionate people with those who are suffering from poverty. The ministry releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty, with the goal of turning each child into a responsible and fulfilled adult. It's a long-term approach, beginning in some cases with prenatal care and going all the way through leadership development for qualified young adults.
