Yesterday evening Brad and I decided to sponsor a child through World Vision. I chose a little girl from Kenya, who lives in a community severely affected by HIV and AIDS. Through our sponsorship we can help provide education, health care (including HIV/AIDS counseling and prevention education), food, clean water, care for their sick or dying parents (so sad that this is even a service that needs to be offered), and other things we like to take for granted over here in the States. We chose to sponsor a Hope Child, which is a special program that works with children and families in AIDS affected areas. The little girl we are sponsoring says her health is satisfactory, so I am assuming that means she is not HIV positive. I'm sure, though, she knows many people who are. Her name is Amina.
