The 1st international meeting of the children living with HIV/AIDS shall gather in Versailles (Yvelines, 10 minutes from Paris 'Notre-dame'), more than fifteen children from all the planet (India, Russia, Poland, Algeria, Morocco etc.) infected by HIV.
The aim of this 1st meeting aims is to alert the public opinion on the existence of these children living with AIDS. This situation requires means adapted to the specific needs of these children, as well as joint actions at a world level, that our network of international organizations plans to support.
It is also an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for these children to understand that they are not the only ones affected by this disease. It is a question of encouraging the oldest which wish to create groups of support, to begin to conceive their project. This 1st international IMCA | 2009 could contribute to federate children's new generation affected by this chronic disease, which could grow by bringing to the world their unique experiment of their fight against the virus, but also against discriminations and segragations that come along HIV / AIDS desease.
For this week, children of India, Poland, Algeria (etc.), and their adults guides will be welcomed and will follow a cultural program (with the visit of several museums and sites of the capital), but also an artistic one around creative workshops. An auction of the works so produced by the children will be organized at the conclusion of this week, all the profits of that event shall be given back to the organizations that participate to that the IMCA.
This first meeting was organized by the NGO ACWT and her sister organizations throughtout the whole world. ACWT (alias TDMES) aims at helping children infected or affected by HIV / AIDS. Our actions are based on four pillars :
