WHAT is World AIDS Day?

World AIDS Day is officially recognized every year on December 1, as proclaimed by UNICEF. It is a global day of action and awareness in the fight against HIV and AIDS.

You can join the movement. Donate to Compassion’s AIDS Initiative or Sponsor an AIDS-affected child today.

Charity Navigator 4-star CharityCharity Navigator, the largest independent evaluator of charities in the country, has awarded Compassion its highest ranking for twelve years in a row. The organization also ranked Compassion in the top one percent of charities.
WHY Bring Awareness to HIV and AIDS?

Each day, about 1,000 children worldwide become infected with HIV, the vast majority of them newborns.

Although about 33 percent of HIV-positive pregnant women receive drug therapies to prevent the transmission of HIV to their infants, only 11 percent of HIV-positive women in sub-Saharan Africa who need antiretrovirals have access.

This is the introduction to a vicious cycle, one that can be prevented through education and the access to medicine.

Sadly, the cycle is repeating and it is leaving children in poverty without help or hope.

Currently, less than 10 percent of HIV-positive children in need of treatment are being treated.

When you donate to Compassion’s AIDS Initiative you are bringing hope and critical care to mothers and newborns (among others) who are faced with or infected with HIV or AIDS.

WHO is Infected by This Disease?

There are an estimated 2 million children under 15 living with HIV, nearly 90 percent live in sub-Saharan Africa.

The numbers are overwhelming. This is a pandemic that must be addressed.

HOW Can I Support and Raise Awareness for World AIDS Day?

You can partner with Compassion International by donating to our AIDS Initiative fund.

This fund does not just help children who are infected with the HIV virus or living with AIDS, but it also supports others who are affected when their parents and/or siblings die from AIDS.

You can intervene today by giving to this fund, which exists to:

  • prevent the transmission of HIV and AIDS through education.
  • treat those who are infected, offering ART and transportation to clinics, along with counseling and support.
  • rehabilitate Compassion-assisted children who have lost a parent to AIDS or who are infected with HIV.
ECFA Charter Member Compassion is a charter member and member in good standing of the Evangelical Council on Financial Accountability (ECFA). This is an independent review board for hundreds of Christian non-profit organizations.
WHEN Can I help?

World AIDS Day is recognized every year on the first of December. You can show your support in the fight against HIV and AIDS by giving to Compassion’s AIDS Initiative fund on this day.

But, it doesn’t have to be World AIDS Day for you to play a critical role in the fight against this disease. You can give any day of the year. You can even choose to give $10.00 monthly or more.

Step in the gap for a child in poverty today. Donate to the AIDS Initiative fund.
