African Services has provided rapid HIV testing to children over 18 months of age at their Pediatric AIDS clinic since 2004. To date, they have diagnosed over 200 HIV positive children, who were then referred to partner organizations for further clinical evaluation, treatment, care, and support. Pediatric nurses examine children monthly and meet with their families to monitor their medical treatment and nutrition. African Services also supplies families with the vitamin supplements necessary to support nutrition for healthy immune systems.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, 100% of proceeds will directly benefit HIV positive children. Please visit the event page on the African Services Committee website for more event information and to purchase a benefit ticket: www.africanservices.org/events/PositiveKids2

This $200 ticket includes a microloan donation of $100 and entry for one person. Purchase a Milk Money artwork: Inspired by the artwork of Simon Evans, the children in African Services' HIV program in Ethiopia created original drawings for this event. The cost of each artwork will provide one child with the milk necessary to process HIV medication for one year. This $160 ticket includes a Milk Money drawing of your choice and entry for one person to the event.
