Ubuntu Africa and Vanessa Williams Join Forces to Tackle Pediatric AIDS
Vanessa Williams joins Ubuntu Africa as its Ambassador of Health, Hope, and Happiness to draw attention to the plight of HIV+ children.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 01, 2012
Ubuntu Africa (UBA) is proud to announce that award-winning actress and recording artist Vanessa Williams has signed on as its Ambassador of Health, Hope, and Happiness. Ms. Williams will work with UBA throughout the fall to help build support for HIV+ children in South Africa, and to highlight the impact of AIDS on a generation of children throughout the continent.
Ms. Williams introduced herself in her new role as Ubuntu Africa Ambassador with the following statement:
“Medical care, a safe home, and a belief in the future - this is what I have seen Ubuntu Africa bring to children born with HIV. I am proud to be a part of this organization and I hope that you will join me in supporting Ubuntu Africa as it fights to better the lives of South Africa’s children with HIV.”
Ms. Williams will champion Ubuntu Africa’s awareness efforts as it approaches World AIDS Day (December 1, 2012).
In honor of World AIDS Day, UBA is asking businesses and individuals to make a meaningful donation on or around World AIDS Day (December 1st) to its programs, which help HIV+ children both survive and thrive.
Join Ms. Williams in supporting Ubuntu Africa – whether you are an international financial firm or a local wine shop, a family of five or an individual, there are roles for all potential partners. And every donation makes a difference: $2,500 supports one UBA child for one year; $500 provides a month of medical supplies; and $100 provides a hot meal to all 200 UBA children.
