HIV and COVID-19 Appeal

How can you help SLF partners respond to COVID-19? As the new coronavirus spreads across sub-Saharan Africa, our community-based partners are best placed to protect and support the most vulnerable populations. People affected by HIV and AIDS are particularly at risk, and must not disproportionately suffer the impacts of COVID-19. We're launching a COVID-19 Appeal as donations are urgently needed to ensure grassroots organizations can continue to provide critical services and outreach.

About the Stephen Lewis Foundation

The Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF) works with community-level organizations which are turning the tide of HIV & AIDS in Africa by providing care and support to women, orphaned children, grandmothers and people living with HIV & AIDS. Since 2003, we have funded over 1800 initiatives, partnering with more than 325 community-based organizations in the 15 African countries hardest hit by the global AIDS pandemic.

These grassroots groups are the lifeline for their communities: they provide counselling and education about HIV prevention, care and treatment; distribute food, medication and other necessities; reach the sick and vulnerable through home-based health care; help orphans and vulnerable children access education and work through their grief; and support grandmothers caring for their orphaned grandchildren.
