Angels news from South Africa
These are children of Thembalethu Orphanage.
AAA Victoria supports these children. $200 a year provides food for one child. $35 a year covers primary school fees, books and uniforms for the school age children.
The Born to Live program at St. Mary's Hospital at Marianhill provides Anti-retroviral drugs to pregnant women in order to block the transmission of AIDS from mother to child at delivery. Mother and child then need follow up medication. The cost of this treatment is $400 per person per year. AAA is one of the main supports for this program.
