OVERVIEW: FACT SHEET ABOUT HIV/AIDS IN CAMEROON
According to National AIDS Control Committee,
Central Technical Group (2010) in the publication
titled "The Impact of HIV/AIDS in Cameroon through
2020", the number of children orphaned by AIDS, Tb,
and Malaria -- children under age 18 who have lost one
or both parents to AIDS -- has increased dramatically,
rising from 13,000 orphans in 1995 to 304,000 in
2010. By 2020, this number is projected to rise to
350,000. Children orphaned by AIDS represent about
25% of Cameroon's total 1,200,000 orphans in 2010.
Providing appropriate support and care for orphans
and vulnerable children (OVC) poses challenges for
both families and society. Many OVC live outside of
family support, and many OVC are marginalized,
stigmatized, isolated, and discriminated against.
Consequently, they are exposed to harmful conditions
such as lack of schooling, low literacy, begging,
pedophilia, juvenile delinquency, prostitution,
violence, and the transmission of HIV and other
sexually transmissible infections (STIs). You can

There is need for our
collaborative support to children orphaned by
HIV/AIDS and people with disabilities to attend
School. Minority Health Promotion Initiative, Inc.,
(MHPI) NGO is focused on providing support to
orphanages and awarding Scholarships to Orphans and
People with disabilities to attend school at all
levels-- Primary, Secondary, Technical,
Professional, and Institutions of Higher Education (IHE).
Your donation will provide education to this
underprivileged and underserved segment of society.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste. MHPI is
determined to transform lives, educate, empower and
engage youths so as to contribute positively to
national economic productivity. You could be
sponsoring a future Scientist, Doctor, Lawyer,
Entrepreneur, Administrator, Representative, Senator
or President. The goal of MHPI is to raise at least
$100,000.00 to start awarding Scholarships as well
as serving as a thousand points of light to children
orphaned by HIV/AIDS and People with disabilities.
Just imagine that $1000.00 will sponsor an orphan
through a nursing program or Technical School or
Secondary School or University for one year. All
donations are tax deductible in the USA.
