I am providing you 2 articles from SELAVIP sent by Fr. Jorge Anzorena, SJ. The articles are efforts by CSOs in Tanzania and China in their effort to provide shelter to orphans caused by the AIDs Epidemic.

Hi Fr. Jorge,
How are you Fr. Jorge? Haven't seen you for a long time. This is Nick de Rosas. I am now working with PHILSSA as their advocacy officer.
I just want to share my experience in attending the 2010 AIDs conference in Vienna that might be of interest to you as well. I attended the conference thru the sponsorship of Housing Works and the National Aids Housing Coalition (NAHC) based in the US. They are advocating for housing for (PLA) people living with HIV AIDs since it has great influence on the prevention and care of HIV/AIDs. On my part, after attending the conference, i am trying to gather information on efforts here in asia- if their are groups focused on providing homes for PLAs that can be replicated and a source of learning for others. You might also be interested on this housing concern.
Also, Priya Gopalen of Rooftops Canada is sending her regards and she is looking for you as well.
