The Malezi AIDS Care Awareness Organization (MACAO) is committed to supporting people living with HIV/AIDS, orphaned or vulnerable children, and supporting other people who have been affected by the HIV/AIDS disease. MACAO works from the belief that all people should be able to love their life and be a part society regardless of age or race. MACAO believes that all people are entitled to the basic rights of access to food, security, education, vocational training, healthcare, shelter, employment, and participation in community development.
By targeting groups of individuals that have been the most marginalized from society, either culturally, geographically or for another reason, MACAO aims to provide basic services and education to those that otherwise would have little other access to necessary resources. By treating all groups as equals, MACAO maintains the vision to “bridge cultural gaps to healthier communities.”
