Giving 2(to) AIDS Victims

What do AIDS victims need? 

In various areas, AIDS victims or HIV-positive persons and their children often need medication, food, clothing, diapers, basic necessities and other items.  Many children in various parts of the world are orphaned by AIDS and may also be infected by the same disease.  You can give money, materials from your business or collections, or items that you purchase.    Below the list of Needed Gifts, the Giving Resources will help you distribute your gifts to the intended recipients.  Your local phone book lists many charities and you can also use the new Google "Local" search tool for charities in a particular city or ZIP code.  Check with the Giving Resource or charity to make sure that they can accept and distribute material or in-kind gifts.  Even if the item is listed on a wish list, it's best to communicate with the organization in advance of shipping any donated materials.

You can also help to prevent child abuse in hospitals, orphanages and homeless camps ...

Medication Most of all, AIDS victims need medication to help them survive day by day as well as to protect their friends and family members from possible infection.  The cost for medication varies geographically from a few hundred dollars to ten thousand dollars per year (in the USA) per person.  Currently there is no cure or vaccine to prevent AIDS.  Donating dollars to AIDS research is very much in need until a cure or vaccine is developed.  If you or your company can contribute AIDS medication, this will be much appreciated.
Food Most AIDS victims in various parts of the world are disabled and need food for themselves and their children.  If medication is available, they may be able to provide for themselves, providing there are opportunities for employment or other income options.  Unfortunately, many AIDS victims live in places where opportunities for earning living wages are hard to find.  Discrimination against persons infected with HIV or AIDS also limits the earning power of these individuals.
Clothing People who are too sick to earn a living need clothing for themselves and their children.  In general, families and children suffering with AIDS need clothing such as play clothes, sleepwear, socks - stockings , shoes - boots, underwear and sweaters - hoodies to keep them comfortable during cold weather. Your local charity specializing in AIDS services will advise you on specific items in need. See samples of essential socks we all need for comfort and safety, which you can purchase today...
Diapers Many mothers with AIDS need your help to support their children.  Sometimes the children are also infected with AIDS.  In some cases, the parents of these sick children may have already died from AIDS.  Diapers, baby clothing, blankets, baby food and similar items are all in need.  Many AIDS mothers were infected by their husbands who did not know they carried the AIDS virus.
Basic Necessities Many AIDS victims are unable to work or earn a living.  They need your help.  In addition to medication, food, clothing and diapers, as mentioned above, AIDS victims need personal care, volunteer services, housing, items for personal comfort such as blankets, pillows, beds, radios, televisions, books, and other items. Children's reading books can be helpful to accelerate the education of children while dealing with family stresses and illness. Step Into Reading books are available from Steps 1 - 5.
Electronics Many AIDS survivors are in need of electronic devices, such as computers and prepaid cell phones, to help them make a living.  Many also need TVs, iPODs, radios and similar devices to simply improve their quality of life.   In addition, many of the helping organizations list office supplies, such as computers, printers and other electronic devices, on their donation wish lists.  Several wish lists are provided in the Giving Resources websites listed below.
