This Giving Tuesday, will you #PassTheMilk to a family in need?The effects of HIV—rooted in the Rwandan genocide—are keeping children trapped in extreme poverty in Rwanda. But when you give a cow, families can drink nutrient-rich milk, earn a steady income and have hope for a better future.
Felix and his family live trapped in HIV-related poverty.
Felix’s mother, Freya, lives with HIV. She can’t take her medication without proper nutrition—it makes her sick. Freya longs to find work to provide for her children, but is isolated from society because of the stigma attached to her disease. The family doesn’t have money for clothing or even soap. Some nights, Felix and his siblings go to bed with empty stomachs.
But you can come alongside them in their struggle. With a cow, HIV-positive caregivers like Freya can get nutritious milk to activate their medication, have an income source to provide for their children, and ultimately, grasp onto hope again.
