When was Help Us Hope formed & Why?
help us hope was officially launched in February 2009 and was set up to assist HIV/AIDS burdened community orphans and women with home based health care, psychological support and mostly to promote the reduction of the prevalence of sexually transmitted infections other than HIV/AIDS.
We are passionate about caring for abused and abandoned babies. We care for premature babies, children born with HIV, foetal alcohol syndrome, cerebral palsy, and many developmental hindrances. With our team of volunteer experts we address these developmental stumbling blocks through nutrition and stimulation in all areas of their lives. Our aim is to give every baby the best chance to overcome these challenges.
Our Mission Statement
To inspire hope, contribute to health and well-being and to create lasting solutions to poverty, hunger and social injustice.
Our vision is a nation in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.
- Acceptance of self and others
- Holistic health though balanced living
- Progression rather than "perfection"
- Positivity in recovery
- Thriving in life rather than simply "surviving"
Our Urgent Appeal
As pioneers of children and women, help us hope’s objective is to create lasting positive change in the lives of children living with and affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. We are a small and agile organization – which allows us to be where the need is paramount. We move courageously and with urgency in our work to raise awareness and rally resources to ensure that women and children live with dignity and hope for the future.
An emergency appeal for donations and sponsorships for children and women whose lives are shattered by the HIV/AIDS epidemic include:
- Securing a permanent shelter for abused and abandoned babies
- Nutritious meals for those with suppressed immune systems and sanitation
- Health education addressing behavior and lifestyle choices that helps motivate women to improve and maintain their health
- Child-focused development programs to support early learning literacy
- Provision of blankets, clothing, shoes, books and toys
We rely on our strong relationship with the medical community to provide access to health care, knowledge and infrastructure to extend our reach. Most of all, we rely on you – our donors, volunteers and friends to promote the respect, dignity and well-being of children and women living with and affected by HIV.
