Children and adolescents who are living with HIV/AIDS--and those who have infected residential relatives--experience fear, hopelessness, depression, low self-esteem, anger, lack of communication, the inability to properly resolve conflict and emotional outbursts. Infected and affected children are victims of discrimination, have to cope with 'end of life' issues, are taunted by their peers, and often have to deal with the trauma of watching a loved one die. These children need a support system that is sensitive to, proactive and creative in meeting their specific needs. Get involved with the Super HEROes Mentoring Program today!
