Fund Raising

1% of your purchase will be donated to Grace Ajbike Aids Foundation.

Grace Ajbike Aids Foundation is an International non-profit organisation funding programmes that help to alleviate the physical, emotional and financial hardship of those living with, affected by, or at risk of HIV/AIDS.

The foundation community programmes support and build partnerships with local organisations who are working to directly avert the spread of HIV & AIDS, and to improve the treatment, care and support of people infected with, or affected by HIV/AIDS.

HIV/AIDS in Africa

According to UNAIDS (2009), Sub-Saharan Africa is more heavily affected by HIV & AIDS than any other region of the world. An estimated 22.4 million people are living with HIV in the region - around two thirds of the global total. In 2008, around 1.4 million died from AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa and 1.9 million people became infected with HIV. Since the beginning of the epidemic, more than 14 million children have lost one or both parents to AIDS.

South Africa has one of the highest incidences of HIV/AIDS at 18.8% of the adult population. In addition, it is estimated that there are over 1.2 million AIDS orphans, which is half of all orphans.

The incidence of AIDS among the adult population in Nigeria is estimated by UNICEF to be 5.4%. UNICEF estimated that there are over 1.8 million orphans in Nigeria as a result of HIV/AIDS.

In the absence of massively expanded prevention treatment and care efforts, it is expected that the AIDS death toll in Sub-Saharan Africa will continue to rise. This means the impact of the AIDS epidemic on these societies will be felt most strongly in the course of the next ten years and beyond. It's social and economic consequences are already widely felt, not only in the health sector, but also in education, industry, agriculture, transport, human resources and the economy in general. The AIDS epidemic in Sub-Saharan Africa threatens to devastate whole communities, rolling back decades of development progress.

Grace Ajbike Aids Foundation is committed to mitigate the effect of HIV/AIDS on those that are infected or affected by the epidemic by supporting community based organisation to limit the spread of HIV, alleviate the physical and emotional hardship of those living with, affected by, or at risk of HIV/AIDS and provide funding for education of orphans in Sub-Saharan Africa, especially South Africa and Nigeria.
