Open Arms, Malawi

SING provided funds for the building of a “transition home” for infants who have lost their mothers during childbirth, mainly as a result of an HIV-related illness.

Hearing Nelson Mandela describe the African HIV pandemic in 2003 as a genocide, with women and children as the frontline victims, was a turning point in Annie Lennox’s life. After seeing for herself how people were struggling to cope, Annie became an activist. And in 2007, she consolidated her work into the SING campaign.

SING is about advocacy and fundraising. It raises global awareness about the impact of HIV on women and children – particularly in South Africa, Malawi and the UK. This aims to promote global action on the issue. It provides financial support for organisations in these countries helping to ensure HIV-positive women and children have access to the treatment and care they need. This is especially important in order to reduce the transmission of HIV from mothers with HIV to their babies.  

 

The funds to make these grants come from money raised by Annie’s performances, income from the SING record and public donations to the campaign through the SING website. This adds up to over £1 million to date. Please take a moment to watch this short film http://youtu.be/3Yw1fKoaMc4

 

You can make a donation to SING direct at: www.annielennoxsing.com
