Every 15 seconds, a Child-Headed Household is Formed In the developing world, the death of parents from AIDS leaves behind little children, often four or five of them, who desperately want to stay together as a family—a Child-Headed Household. Imagine watching your mother and father slowly die before your eyes, leaving you to bury them and then to raise and care for your younger brothers and sisters. AIDS Orphans Rising takes you through the daily lives of these children and answers key questions, such as: Where do they live? How do they survive? What can I do to help? There are millions of AIDS orphans! Left alone, they will be uneducated, disenfranchised, and unwanted: ripe candidates for radicalization and exploitation by dictators and terrorists. If good people like yourself do not reach out to these children so they can get love, an education and set up in some profitable enterprise, civilization will deteriorate to a point that you will not even recognize it. Each chapter provides real solutions and actions that you can take now to help these children not only survive, but succeed. "The first edition of AIDS Orphans Rising was concerned with the invisible (and exploding) crisis of child-headed households in Africa. It was originally intended to serve as a resource guidebook for concerned teachers, researchers, nonprofit organizations, and policymakers. A funny thing happened; other people began reading the book, too! Sister Mary Beth has many beautiful stories of generous strangers, young and old, who have approached her to offer help. As a result, the perspective of this second edition has been reframed to inform concerned citizens everywhere." -- Connie Mariano, MD, FACP, author of The White House Doctor 100% of all profits from this book will go to help the Child-Headed Households For more info: Published by Loving Healing Press
