Buy the red ribbon in “The Body Shop” stores and support Anna!

The charity organization “Palīdzē” and the store chain “The Body Shop” invite to join them in the struggle against HIV by supporting the girl under the care of Palīdzē, who, being small, is infected with HIV.

At the moment, Anna lives in a foster family, in which there are 3 more foster children and a granddaughter of the foster mother. Anna’s mother was infected with HIV, and after the birth, Anna “inherited” the virus from her mother. Soon after the birth of the daughter, the mother committed suicide, leaving the girl alone in this big world. Anna ended up in a children’s home, where teachers and carers took care of her. However, every child deserves to grow up in a family, and Rita’s family became home for Anna. Rita met Anna at the children’s home and took the girl to her family after the children’s home was liquidated.

Anna studies in a local school, in the 7th grade. The girl actively participates in school’s life, she likes P.E. lessons and attends a hobby group of Russian folklore. At the Centre for Children and Youths, she attends ceramics classes, leather processing classes and glass-painting classes, participates in art plain-airs. At the Day Centre, she studies beading. Anna’s works can be observed at many exhibitions, the girl has received a lot of certificates of appreciation. The girl lives her ordinary life, not even thinking of or mentioning her disease in everyday life.

Medicinal products for the treatment of this disease are paid by the state. In addition, vitamins are required: calcium, iron, etc. The girl has to beware of side diseases, since her immunity is the highest priority. The disease itself destroys girl’s immunity, and the person may die of an ordinary cold. If there was a chance, Anna would like to go horse riding – reittherapy, and would like to go shopping to one of the youth stores in Riga.

By participating in this campaign and purchasing the red ribbon, everyone can help Anna to make her dreams come true!

The campaign is held from November 29 to December 15 in all “The Body Shop” stores!

You can support this family by making a donation to the account of the organization “Palīdzē”, specifying “for the Red Ribbon campaign” in the aim of the payment.

Let’s help!
