Describe the need affecting the community.

Dondo is a corridor used by many truck drivers going from the landlocked neighboring countries to the Beira Port by the Indian Ocean. This area is used by the truck drivers as rest point and ending up involving themselves sexually with women in the area. As a result of this, there are many women who get impregnated and most of them end up contracting HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. Most of these mothers die, they leave behind little children in orphan conditions, with no one to take care of them.
