    AIDS in China & Blood Selling

    Current Situation

    Government Help The Government has become increasingly aware of the AIDS orphans issue, and is trying to establish assistance programs for them. However, given the large number of these orphans and their rapidly declining conditions, the efforts may not reach as many children as quickly as it should.

    Why we help

    Social Impact These children are mostly HIV negative and will continue to be a part of society for many years to come. Helping these children now and making them a social investment rather than a social welfare problem can help to prevent the large-scale social tragedy of a generation of illiterate and destitute children.

    An old man was taking a walk with his granddaughter on the beach on a beautiful evening. The picture perfect scenery warmed by the setting sun was spoilt by the thousands of starfish that were washed up by the sea and dying on the beach. The old man picked one up and threw it back.
