I am going to support AZG (Artsen Zonder Grenzen), which translates into Doctors Without Borders. This is an organization that helps people all over the world. Besides many other things, AZG helps the fight against AIDS. There are people that are off a lot worse than us (yes, it sounds cheesy), but we should help them.

After seeing this video I was really quite shocked. I want to make more people aware of the seriousness of AIDS, as more and more people are dying from it. “In 2007, globally, about 2 million people died of AIDS, 33 million were living with HIV and 2.5 million people were newly infected with the virus.” (UNAIDS, World Health Organization. 2007. AIDS epidemic update.) These numbers are very high, and it’s horrible.

For my animation, I will focus on that you can support others to treat these people so that they do not have to die. Things can be done about this, and I want to let people know that. I would also like to show how it is done in my animation, so that people get a better idea of treatments and such.
