How many children are affacted by HIV/AIDS?

Posted by Meeting Point Hoima On 5:34 PM 1 comment

Every year hundreds of thousands of children are infected with HIV. According to UNAIDS estimates, there are now 2.1 million children suffering from HIV in the world.   

In Uganda about 150,000 children are living with HIV and 1.2 million children have been orphaned by Uganda's devastating epidemic. In fact, Uganda has the largest population of orphans per capita of any country in the world. It is very important to help these children, because many of them can not effort to get an education. They grow up without any support and they may become our biggest problem in the future; “The children of today are the future of tomorrow”, and as these children are more likely to become street children, the future looks dark.  

In Hoima District the number of children affected by HIV/AIDS is extremely high. Meeting Point Hoima is one of few organisations in Hoima District which supports these children, and of course Meeting Point Hoima needs all the help it can get.
