Act against Aids at Giving Tuesday

December the 3rd is Giving Tuesday – the worldwide day of giving and donating. We are also participating with a project which we dedicated to Simba. Please support teenagers who are HIV positive like Simba, so they get professional care and are enabled to live a self-determined life.

Watch the video

At Newlands Clinic in Zimbabwe’s capital city Harare we treat 6,500 patients coming from the poorest background. A lot of our patients are teenagers like 17-year-old Simba in our video. He was born HIV positive. The illness has turned the life of his family upside down. But that does not hold Simba back from dreaming big: “I want to be a doctor, to help my people. That is my dream.” Thanks to a successful therapy at Newlands Clinic and support like school fee, Simba is living his life with confidence and hope. Simba is now strong enough to work hard and he learns diligently at school to fulfil his dream. Help HIV positive teenagers like Simba to live a self-determined life.
