World Aids Day

I’m a week late on posting this but I think it needs to be said.
15 million children worldwide have been orphaned by Aids. Let’s take a minute to think about what that means. More than 50% of these children are in countries with fragile infrastructures, so children end up looking after their brothers and sisters. School becomes increasingly difficult to afford both in terms of money and in terms of time. Literacy goes down, future employability goes down. Girls become more vulnerable to prostitution and child marriages. Boys become more easily drafted into child armies, terrorism or the drug trade. A whole generation of healthcare workers are lost to illiteracy.
