Run for the dream of an AIDS-free generation!

16 Aug

Every day, more than 650 babies are born with HIV. Half of all babies living with HIV die before their second birthday if they do not receive treatment. UNICEF targets to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV by 2015. With your donation, UNICEF will continue bringing changes to the lives of marginalized children and their families who are in need of the services. Together, we can achieve an AIDS-free generation.
