India against AIDS - Become a Foster Parent

Visit OrangeStreet to know more and donate for the Petralthan Pillaya Trust.  The Petralthan Pillaiya Trust is an initiative to support over 2500 HIV positive children in the state of Tamil Nadu. The Trust was started with the intention of supporting medical insurance for these children. However, with growing access to medication, children are living longer and other issues grow in prominence. Most of these children are born HIV positive. By the time they reach adolescence, their parents have either passed away or are often in no state of health to provide support. The child needs physical, mental and emotional strength to stand on their own.  To this end, the Trust hopes to support nutrition and education, as well as if required, psychological and adolescent counselling and vocational training.
