HIV/Aids and Children in India
Around 90% of all children living with HIV acquired the infection from their mothers during pregnancy, birth or breastfeeding. A pregnant woman can transmit the virus to her fetus through their shared blood circulation, or a nursing mother can transmit it to her baby in her milk. In many cases in India the infants or new born also get infection through blood – via blood transfusions or needle sharing from mother to child. Children are being turned away from schools, clinics and orphanages because they or their family members are HIV-positive. AIDS in India has been a taboo topic for years, and to a large extent it remains so today. In recent years the central government has become more involved in raising awareness of AIDS and taking steps to prevent and contain it.
India is one of the poorest nations in the world and has many children who are destitute, illiterate and have not hope for future. However, individuals, many business people and several churches make it possible for Zion Gospel Ministries to care for children.
Now Zion Gospel Ministries 30 children in education and clothing. We have seen this is a bridge for the church planters where they can go to the villages and share together the Gospel with them. We are Praying and planning to start a “House of Zion” for destitute children this year where these children find love, Joy, Peace and to call it their home. It is a place where they can learn about and know more of God and to receive an education that will give them hope and chance in Indian society.
These orphan children need at least US $50/- per month for one of their maintenance. We pray that those too will take part definitely in our Mission Zion Gospel Ministries here after and send supports to these distatutus. You kindly extend your best to us so that we may be able to help them in the name of Jesus. We pray that our Almighty god will be with you and you continuously.
