Aids Orphans in Zambia
Zambia has a relatively high incidence of HIV/AIDS - 16.5% of the adult population - and over 50% of orphans are as a result of HIV/AIDS. The situation is aggravated by drought which leads to famine which makes children and their mothers more vulnerable to disease especially HIV/AIDS related illness.
SOS Children works to support children from families affected by HIV/AIDS. The SOS Social Centres in Kitwe and in Lusaka link with local schools to raise awareness and to identify children at particular risk.
