World day of the Orphans of the AIDS
For FXB, these actions carried out illustrate without question the good performances which can be obtained when one endeavors to reinstate the orphans in their company and by supporting the communities which accommodate them. ONG also considers that it is possible to fight this plague effectively and to raise this million orphans of the AIDS and other vulnerable children, in the only condition which the response is supported by a political will of great scale. It is to this end that it took the initiative to create a world coalition of solidarity by initiating on May 7th - world Journée of the orphans of the AIDS”
