Just Save OneSupport the United Methodist Global AIDS Fund (UMGAF) Just Save One Initiative!

If you could save just one person’s life, would you do it? You have the opportunity to Just Save One person living with HIV and AIDS.

Just Save One is an initiative of the United Methodist Global AIDS Fund to eradicate HIV by 2020. For the next year, UMGAF is intensifying its work of prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV and AIDS. Even a small gift can make a big difference. It costs less than $10 to prevent transmission of HIV from a mother to a child; and just $1 provides needed nutrients for an AIDS orphan.

Global AIDS Fund 20/20 LogoPerfect 20/20 vision requires more than seeing, it requires action. The United Methodist Global AIDS Fund is working toward an AIDS-free world by providing a tangible response to the worldwide HIV/AIDS crisis. Through 20/20: Visioning an AIDS-Free World, United Methodists and friends can stop the transmission of HIV from mother to child, teach young adults about HIV prevention, and feed an HIV-positive person, that enables them to take their medicine and lead a productive life. For a commitment of $20 a month or more until the year 2020, you can help put a stop to HIV/AIDS in our world.

The United Methodist Global AIDS Fund supports education, prevention, care, and treatment programs for people living with HIV/AIDS around the world. The Fund currently supports 175 HIV/AIDS church-oriented and Christ-centered ministries in 37 countries, including the United States.

Through the United Methodist Global AIDS Fund plan, 25 percent of what each annual conference raises should be used in that conference for AIDS work, either locally or in global projects.
