Why give to WEEP?

As an orphan prevention initiative developed by HEART, WEEP empowers women with HIV/AIDS. Our project saves the lives of mothers suffering from advanced stages of HIV/AIDS, sparing their children from becoming orphans. Operating in impoverished areas, WEEP identifies HIV positive mothers who have been widowed or abandoned. WEEP commits to providing medical care, nutrition, vitamins, shelter and access to ARV drugs. We also assure that their children have the resources to attend school. Once physically stable, the mothers are taught a trade at a WEEP center, where they become self-sufficient and break out of the brutal cycle of poverty in Kenya.
