Camp Hope and Joy
At the end of July, 2019, we will be celebrating our 15th summer of camp, with the goal of helping children living with HIV to build self-esteem, self-confidence, and become empowered so that they are better able to make healthy decisions. With your support, we will offer two five-day sessions of over-night camp for 70 children. Campers will explore their strengths, make new friends, and learn about the importance of medication adherence. The emotional benefits of being in a completely stigma-free environment, with other children who are living with the same condition, cannot be overstated. Indeed, summer camp is the highlight of the year for the campers, who come from situations of extreme poverty and food insecurity. This free camp is only possible because of donors like you. Your donation, of any size, pays for everything from food and lodging to the recreational activities that are so critical to the camp’s success. I am attaching our brochure with more information, and here is a link for a video about camp:

If you are interested in supporting Camp Hope and Joy, you can make a tax-deductible donation via the Children´s Global Health Fund, our US-based non-profit organization. Checks may be mailed to the address on this stationery, and online donations can be made at www.childrensglobalhealthfund.org/donate. You can also support us by choosing the Children’s Global Health Fund as your selected charity on smile.amazon.com, which will mean that a portion of your Amazon purchases will be donated to us.
