Program Care

People need care. Unfortunately, for many vulnerable people, care is inaccessible. Minor illnesses or lack of birth care can lead to unnecessary deaths. 

In addition, HIV+ is a problem of immense proportions. It is estimated that more than 30 million people worldwide are infected with HIV. And 95 percent of these patients live in developing countries. AIDS is the leading cause of death in sub-Saharan Africa and health systems are overwhelmed. The disease prevents children from going to school because they themselves are ill or because their relatives are ill and can no longer provide an income. Many young people were hit hard by what is disastrous for a country, because they form the working population. Worldwide, millions of children lost one or both parents to AIDS.

What does ChildsLife do 

ChildsLife makes access to care accessible and gives people tools and knowledge to improve their situation.
ChildsLife supports women infected with HIV and ensures that they can build an independent life in improved health so that they can continue to provide for their families.
In a Maasai community in Olepolos, already benefitted from the school renovation program, ChildsLife is currently constructing a medical clinic. In this community the infant mortality rate is very high and there is no medical post nearby.
In Romania, ChildsLife supports young mothers in the First Step in Life program which was set up to prevent abandonment of new-borns. ChildsLife also supports children institutes and schools in Eastern Europe with relief goods such as clothes, hygiene products, school supplies, furniture and house hold appliances.
