Behind organizations such as the Stephen Lewis Foundation, there are organizations such as Aeroplan that can help move the needle by giving our members the chance to donate Aeroplan Miles to help grassroots organizations rewrite the story of AIDS in Africa.

From February 22nd– 28th, donate your miles to the Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF) and we’ll match the miles donated up to 500,000. It’s an easy way for you to make double the difference and support a great organization. 

The Stephen Lewis Foundation works with community-level organizations to help turn the tide of HIV/AIDS in Africa by providing care and support to women, children orphaned by AIDS, grandmothers and people living with HIV and AIDS.

Since 2003, they have funded over 1,100 initiatives, partnering with more than 300 community-based organizations in the 15 African countries hardest hit by the pandemic. Click here to learn more.

The Foundation works with grassroots groups that help the community in many ways: providing counselling and education about HIV prevention, care and treatment; distributing food, medication and other necessities; reaching the sick and vulnerable through home-based health care; helping orphans and vulnerable children access education and coping and grieving resources; and support seniors caring for their orphaned grandchildren.

Since 2006, more than 65 million Aeroplan Miles have been donated to the Stephen Lewis Foundation by generous members like you. This has contributed to:

  • Supporting work in 15 African countries
  • Amplifying the voices of African leaders by bringing them to Canada to share their expertise in rebuilding communites devastated by AIDS
  • Bringing community workers together across Africa to share experiences  on counselling, orphan care and home-based health care
  • Facilitating visits by field representatives to partner organizations to conduct monitoring and evaluation work
