I Know Someone
Over 33 million people in the world are infected with HIV/AIDS, and two thirds of them live in Sub-Saharan Africa. Because of barriers to education and understanding, many of us don't know anyone affected by this disease. For those living with HIV/AIDS, drinking contaminated water opens the door to opportunistic infections in an already weakened immune system. This direct link between AIDS and water launched the dual purpose of Blood:Water Mission--clean blood, free from HIV/AIDS and clean water, free from disease.
While there is no one-size-fits-all solution to AIDS, we are working through our partners to address the gaps in HIV/AIDS programs, implementing effective and sustainable solutions including education, treatment and support. Through our partnership in several communities, we have been able to walk alongside many living positively and get to know their stories. We now invite you to know them too. Here are a few inspiring people we've met along the way that we hope will help you be able to say "I Know Someone".
It is said "To Know is to Love."
Know. Love. Act
