Mother and baby
This gift helps not one, but two people live life to its fullest. This gift cares for mothers living with HIV and gives their unborn children the best chance at living a healthy and happy life. A truly touching gift for someone who cares.
How This Helps
In Zimbabwe, Oxfam provides support to young people born and living with HIV in accepting their status and preventing them from spreading the infection to their babies. Together with our local partners, we work to make sure they receive support, adhere to their treatment plan, and live their lives to their potential. Sexual reproductive health services are integrated to fully support young female adolescents who decide to have babies.
“I have learnt to cope with my status and carry on with life. My baby girl gives me joy and so much hope to live. I will tell other people that are HIV positive that the sky is the limit.”
— Duduzile Ruzive, a mother living with HIV whose baby tested negative, Zimbabwe
Gift Cards Which Make a Difference
Wow you read right to the bottom of the page, now what? Here’s some other fun things to try out. Why not buy a pig for charity, or compose a tweet on Twitter about how much you want someone to get you some poo this year instead of a Christmas gift. Or you could buy an early Valentine’s day gift, buy yourself a chicken, or send someone a toilet in the post.
