CHIVA Projects

CHIVA is a children’s charity which supports young people living with HIV. The charity provides young suffers with the support and knowledge they need to lead a fullfilling life.
Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, was a huge supporter of HIV charities. The Princess famously shut down the stigmas that HIV could be contracted through touch when she shook the hands of dying victims in an open AIDS ward in 1987.
Her legacy is being carried on by her sons Prince William and Harry, who are both avid supports of AIDS and HIV charities.
