To see them laughing, smiling, and enjoying life with joy. While suffering AIDS. At least they are celebrating life while fighting, and accepting the truth, instead of crying in despair. December 1st is World AIDS Day. Participate. Support, and Help raise awareness.
Africa is a big continent, but has cities under stricken poverty. Their natural resources are sparse. Most are illiterate, under starvation, because they couldn’t afford the basic needs. They go to the extremes for survival. Seeing them through the media such as photography made me cry. I want to hug them with my open arms and say, “It’s ok. I am here for you. I will help you anyway I can.” Philippines and India are not only the countries suffering, Africa is.
Ubuntu Africa, a non-profit organization, is there to provide the essentials. They not only have community-based programs with lifesaving heath and support services but help free children with HIV + through giving them life and future opportunities .
I want to thank Robyn Deutsch, Director of Development, and Jessica Annis, Director of Operations and Strategy, for accepting my work for their non-profit organization, Ubunta Africa.
