Would you recommend American Foundation for Children with AIDS?

Fantastic charity that not only provides medicine and basic nutrition to HIV children and their caregivers in Sub-Sahara Africa, but helps to build self-sufficiency for them. Especially through their ‘Livelihood program’ that supplies goats and other livestock to allow families to eventually provide for themselves. In 2011, They spent 92% on programs directly affecting the children (medicine, training, school fees, food, livelihood programs), 6% on fundraising and 2% on administration.
