Changing lives for HIV+ children
Sentebale are delighted to receive support and funds from the Elton John AIDS Foundation to build the ‘Mamohato Centre of Excellence for children living with HIV.
The facility will allow Sentebale quadruple the number of HIV-positive children who currently receive emotional and psychological support through the ‘Mamohato Network Clubs and Camps Programme.
The children leave the camp having learnt more about HIV, the proper ways to take their medication, gain confidence and a positive outlook towards their future. This is vital because without the right support, over half of all children with HIV will drop out of care.
Sentebale are hugely grateful to the Elton John AIDS Foundation for helping give the vulnerable children of Lesotho a chance for a happier, healthier and hopeful future.
The video below was commissioned by Elton John AIDS Foundation and highlights the impact the programme can have on the lives of children in Lesotho living with HIV.
