The global economy may be slowing, but the global HIV and AIDS epidemic rages on. Those HIV/AIDS affected children and their families we serve in poor communities in Honduras are particluarly hard hit during these hard economic times. On one front, a downturn in the economy directly affects the families’ livelihoods. On a second front, they may see a reduction in services provided to them by nonprofit organizations as donations and funding to those organizations dip in this difficult global economy.
But we have purpose. We persevere. One child, one dollar, one step at a time. Will you help us by joining the journey? Every donation to Walking With Children makes a difference in the life of a child affected by HIV.
Walking With Children, Inc. is a U.S. 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for children, families and communities affected by HIV/AIDS. We further this mission by partnering with other community-based organizations in Honduras and in the U.S., sharing skills, knowledge and resources in the battle against HIV/AIDS.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for children, families and communities living with HIV. One way we further this mission is by educating and making others aware of the many difficult life issues faced by those living with HIV/AIDS.
On September 13, 2013, WWC founder Christine Frederick will be speaking to 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th graders at Byron Center Christian School in Byron Center, Michigan. Our hope is that these children leave with a better understanding of how difficult life can be for many kids in developing countries around the world, using Honduras as an example, where children their own age live daily with issues stemming from poverty, substandard housing, and serious illness in the family.
The children at Byron Center Christian School have been collecting toothbrushes and other personal care items to send to impoverished children in Honduras. The children will present their donations to Otoniel Monterroso, Financial Administrator at Caminando Con Niños, who is currently visiting and will be taking the donated items back to Honduras.
The entire team of Fundacion Caminando Con Niños was in the Central Park of Tegucigalpa, Honduras working hard this year to spread the word and combat stigma and discrimination associated with living with HIV.
