Of the estimated 2.3 million orphans; about 50% are due to HIV/AIDS. Among the many issues affecting orphans are that children who lose their parents to HIV/AIDS suffer psychological stress and trauma. In addition, parental illness and death may rob children of their inheritance and above all of parental love, care and protection. It is an established fact that children are vulnerable long before their parents die. Girls, in particular, assume caring responsibilities for ailing parents and parenting responsibilities for their siblings. With increasing food insecurity, nutritional status of children is being adversely affected.
