If you visited our website last week, follow us on Twitter, or are our friend on Facebook, you probably know that the Foundation was featured as part of the ABC News series on global health, “Be the Change: Save a Life.”
The series kicked off on Friday night’s television show ABC 20/20, and showcased the Foundation’s innovative “Horse-riding for Health” program. ABC’s Deborah Roberts followed a pony courier to deliver drugs and test results to fight HIV in remote clinics in the mountainous kingdom of Lesotho.
In case you weren’t able to tune in or record the show on Friday night, you can watch it here:
As part of this new series, we’ve also teamed up with GlobalGiving.org to help raise funds for our work around the world. When you’re done watching the video, visit our page on their website
to support our work in Lesotho and around the world to eliminate pediatric HIV and AIDS.
