The children of Rwanda need your help.
"WE-ACTx is an international community-based HIV/AIDS initiative.
The project was launched in 2003, when a group of frontline AIDS physicians, activists and researchers responded to an urgent global appeal from Rwandan genocide survivors for help accessing AIDS medications.
Today, a dedicated team of Rwandan health care providers operate their own local NGO, WE-ACTx for Hope, with the support of WE-ACTx, grassroots community partners and Rwandan government health agencies." - WE-ACTx.com
Latin's partnership with WE-ACTx began in 2005 and expanded in 2009-2010 as we raised $10,000 to support a summer camp for 45 children and leadership training for 9 Rwandan counselors who now serve as peer parents for young children struggling to cope with their HIV status. In the summer of 2010, the first group of Latin students traveled to Rwanda to provide on-site support for the camp.
Since then, Latin students have worked to expand and sustain Latin's involvement in Rwanda by maintaining the camp in Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda, each year as well as spreading the camp experience to the rural, mountainous village of Nyacyonga.
However, despite the ongoing success of our camp, there are still so many more children out there that need our help. Each summer new kids get to experience camp and with your help, we can keep this positive experience going.
A little bit goes a long way! Here are some sample donation sizes that can have a huge influence on the camp:
$35 provides food and water for 1 person's camp experience $200 provides all expenses for 1 camper (over 3 weeks)
$350 provides food and water for 10 campers (over 3 weeks) $1000 provides all expenses for 5 campers (over 3 weeks)
We hope that you will take a few minutes to donate and help Latin reach its goal to fund our camp. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated!!!
