Organization: Chi Heng Foundation Limited
Introduction: Chi Heng Foundation is a program for AIDS impacted children. It supports the placement of children locally and those living with relatives. To limit the stigma that too often comes with being an AIDS orphan, the Foundation does not place children in orphanages. It believes that allowing the children to grow up in a familiar environment with other non-AIDS impacted children is invaluable in providing a sense of comfort and belonging.
