Helping mothers protect their babies, their most precious gift

In Mexico, our “Save a Child from AIDS” program is helping mothers protect their babies, their most precious gift.

The program enables us to offer proper medication, education and training, regular check-ups and follow-ups, nutritional support, and therapy and counseling.

Our successes are many, but we are proud that we help these mothers protect their babies from pregnancy until the age of two, so they are not infected with the HIV virus.  According to the World Health Organization, when medicine is used correctly, an HIV-positive woman treated early in her pregnancy now has a less than 2 percent chance of delivering a baby with HIV.

The program just finished its first year and a positive impact was made! Nearly 100 soon-to-be mothers were taught how to prevent the transmission of HIV to their babies during pregnancy! Read more about our “Save a Child from AIDS” here.
