World Vision takes AIDS message on the road

By March 17, 2004

International (MNN)–World Vision has launched a national campaign to rally support in the fight against Global AIDS.

The two year 25-city “Hope Tour” features awareness events with AIDS experts and World Vision senior spokespeople. The campaign is designed to educate and mobilize millions of individuals from the Christian community and the general public, around the AIDS crisis and more specifically the needs of widows and children.
World Vision is informing Americans about the plight of tens of millions of individuals affected by AIDS around the world, especially orphans and vulnerable children. They will encourage Americans to contact their member of Congress to support President Bush’s AIDS initiative.

They plan to encourage the public and church congregations to partner with World Vision to support their work combating AIDS. They will also let Americans know about the upcoming XV International AIDS Conference in Bangkok, July 11-16, 2004 and World Vision’s role of raising awareness.

World Vision also has a program in place where those interested can sponsor a child through “Hope Child.” For $30 dollars a month various needs will be met for those children who struggle with the effects of AIDS and have little hope. World Vision is using this personal ministry to share the love of Christ. More information is available on their web site at:
