Welcome to my I Keep a Child Alive fundraising page!
I am supporting Keep a Child Alive’s (KCA) work because I believe that all people have the right to access quality, dignified health care. Right now, only 28% of children living with HIV are able to access treatment. I want to make sure that every child and adult living with or affected by HIV can get the medicine, care, and loving support they need to be healthy and have a bright future.
KCA was co-founded in 2003 by Alicia Keys and activist Leigh Blake as an emergency response to get children living with HIV the medicine they needed to stay alive. Ten years later, KCA’s core mission is unchanged and they have expanded their work to include comprehensive clinical care, psychosocial support, and food and nutritional support in Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda, and India.
KCA is unique because they believe that treating people with love and dignity is a central component of HIV care. Another thing I love about KCA is that they work with grassroots, women-led organizations that respond to community needs and help their local partners become self-sufficient.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal by donating and helping to spread the word to your friends and family. It costs just $30 a month for a child to receive the treatment, food, and care they need to stay healthy. Together, we can rally to make sure that EVERY child, teenager, and adult living with or affected by HIV gets the care and support they need and have a right to!
Thank you so much for your support.
In August 2005,I decided to sponsor a girl through Children International because I wanted to help a child in need.I chose a girl cause we all know girls have it the hardest and since I am a gender equality advocate,I wanted to give her an opportunity to go to school, just be a child and I am very proud of that!
This year I want to help KCA by having my friends&family donate for my sponsored child Memory 13th birthday to this wonderful organizationI have been supporting for 5 yrs now and who is also celebrating their 10yrs anniversary
