Alicia Keys helps Keep A Child Alive, HIV positive and AIDS children in Africa. Alicia Keys is urging fellow American celebrities to follow in her footsteps and sponsor HIV positive children in Africa. The multi award-winning artist, who sponsors two children and two women through the charity organisation "Keep a Child Alive," says that she is very happy with the progress that these AIDS patients have made and she wants others to know how simple it is to make a difference.
"I also sponsor two mothers, Anne and Veronica. Before Keep A Child Alive came to the clinic, no one had access to treatment. I've seen pictures of the four people I'm sponsoring before and after their treatment - and, at first, they looked emaciated and beaten down. Today they are happy and healthy and living positive, hopeful lives," Female First quoted her as saying. It blows me away, because it was so easy to do something so incredibly important. Now I'm trying to involve as many people as possible in combating this pandemic. I've written to celebrities like Halle Berry and Cher, who is looking to sponsor five mothers and their child," she added.
Alicia Keys will host An Evening With Alicia Keys and Special Guests, a Worlds AIDS Day benefit to be held at New York's Angel Orensanz Center. The December 1 concert will feature performances by Keys, Common and Angie Stone. Proceeds will benefit Keep a Child Alive, an organization dedicated to providing life-saving medicine to children and families with HIV/AIDS.
Alicia Keys encourages support of Keep a Child Alive, which has established treatment programs in Kenya, South Africa, Uganda and Rwanda. Other artists affiliated with the group include Rod Stewart, Good Charlotte, Cher, Nelly, Josh Groban and Avril Lavigne.
