The Zimbabwe AIDS Orphans Society supports the education and general wellbeing of some 400
children in Zimbabwe. As is the practice in Zimbabwe, the orphaned children live with their extended
families. However, they can rarely afford to pay for the children to go to school or get medical help.
Only too often they cannot even afford to pay for their food.
You can help the children go to school safely in their own community!
