    In Honduras 1 in 8 pregnant women is HIV+.  Montana de Luz is caring for children who are orphaned by HIV or infected with the virus.  We began as a hospice but thanks to ARV therapy the children are no longer dying. However, the secondary affects of the AIDS crisis is that while the children are no longer dying of AIDS, they have or will develop eventually cognitive issues such as short term memory loss and trouble controlling emotions.  This is on top of the cognitive challenges and learning disabities many of the children have.  Also, the level of medical care and attention needed is very high, expensive and difficult to obtain in developing countries.  We are now faced with the challenge of preparing these children who are adolescents with life skills, vocational skills and the resilience to thrive in a culture that actively descriminates against them because of their HIV status.  Also, Honduras is the poorest country in the western hemisphere after Haiti and is the murder capital of the world!
