Orphaids UK is a Christian charity ( Registered Charity number 1081104 ) working with AIDS orphans in Ecuador and Colombia.
We fund and support a project near Santo Domingo de los Tsachilas in Ecuador that supports orphans of AIDS; undertakes health education; supports people with HIV in the community and supports victims of domestic abuse.
We fund and support work in Columbia to undertake health education and support the HIV community.
The Ecuador project is a purpose-built complex which provides a caring home for high risk children who cannot be placed with family or elsewhere.
Working with local government, OrphAids Ecuador takes in children who have been deemed highest risk from HIV/AIDS, or from abuse and neglect. OrphAids provides for their emotional, spiritual, medical and educational needs.
Orphaids also educates various groups about HIV/AIDS and prevention and aims to dispel the myths around how HIV is contracted and to advise on safe sex practices.
OrphAids is hosted by Krystal ( krystal.co.uk )
