“AIDS has killed at least 25 million people worldwide since 1981, and another 42 million are living with AIDS or HIV infection.”
“The pandemic is worst in Africa, where 19 million have died, 28 million are infected, and 13 million children have been orphaned.”
“This is a threat to an entire generation; this is a threat to an entire civilization,” said former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
The HIV/AIDS epidemic challenges us to respond with the uncompromising truth and unconditional love of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is heartbreaking to see the devastation that this killer has left in its wake, with children being orphaned every minute of every day.
Unite 4 Africa works tirelessly to assist African leadership to rise up to address the underlying problem and behaviors bringing the disease, and not simply put a bandage on the situation by treating the symptoms of the disease. We partner with various leadership to bring about a lasting solutions and community transformation, to conquer the disease once and for all. Poverty, desperation and lack of education, jobs, and accessible healthcare are all fueling the fires of this vicious disease.
We work with the local leadership in order to do a thorough assessment of pressing issues within that area that might affect life decisions and behaviors. Then we work closely with the people to truly empower them to overcome their obstacles to living healthier, greater quality lives.
Unite 4 Africa is leading HIV/AIDS awareness seminars and formed partnerships with churches, communities, and other organizations across Africa as we equip and empower people to make wise life decisions. Our goal is to turn head knowledge about HIV/AIDS into practical living skills that will promote healthy living.
