HIV & HEALTH

Health concerns plague refugees on the Buduburam camp.

With the assistance of Saint Gregory's clinic, VAAFD's initiatives are two-fold:

 

    1. Provide counseling and support for those infected with debilitating and life-threatening illnesses. Orphans Against AIDS, a supporter of VAAFD, works to help children who have lost parents or family due to HIV.

 

  1.    Educate the community about STD's and other diseases inherent in camp-life through adult education workshops and school awareness programs.

 

NUCH, an initiative started by a previous volunteer, works with VAAFD to provide free basic hospital care to all teachers and students of CAMES.
