Protect an Infant from HIV/AIDS
Give a healthy start in life to a baby born to an HIV-positive mother.
To stop their babies from contracting the HIV/AIDS virus, HIV-positive mothers are advised not to breastfeed. But in parts of the world with spotty access to safe water and safe foods for this age group, babies who are not breastfed often risk malnutrition.
The first two years are especially critical to children's development in many areas. Ending up in a malnutrition ward is a preventable tragedy -- preventable by simple, low-cost interventions such as infant formula and Nourimanba, a Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food that is saving lives worldwide.
$25.00 feeds a baby safe, reliable and nutritious food for one month, replacing breast milk as much as possible, through Partners in Health (PIH). Your gift provides infant formula, weekly visits from community health workers, a filter to provide clean water, and automatic enrollment in a high-calorie peanut butter and powdered milk treatment (RUTF) to prevent malnutrition and give a healthy and complete start in life.
Partners In Health (PIH) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation whose mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. Through service, training, advocacy, and research, and by establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations, PIH strives to achieve two overarching goals: to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair.
