Roses and Rosemary is an international humanitarian organization that provides medical assistance to orphans and their communities as they struggle to overcome the hardships of HIV and poverty. We aim to release these children from economic, social, and physical poverty. The goal is to be an advocate for these children by providing direct medical and social assistance to those most in need around the globe.

6 Ways We Earn Your Trust

Every life is of equal value.
Focus on Those in Need

We focus on the disease and social issues that will have the greatest benefit from our action. We want our contributions to make a huge difference in the lives of orphans in Africa. We do this by providing medical and humanitarian support with the goal of a measurable impact in these children’s lives within a short period.


We are volunteer based, have no physical offices and have extremely low operating costs. Our goal is to send your donations to those most in need while spending very little on administration.

Targeting Root Causes

We champion projects in the most rural and underserved communities where children most need help. These children and areas are difficult to reach and limited basic care is often not available. We operate across 9 remote locations across Southern Africa. We go to places other do not.


We provide transparent views of our operation and finances. We constantly track our progress and share the results with everyone involved. We make sure to only spend money on things that directly impact the lives of orphans in Africa. Period.

Your Donation Multiplied

Your gift + matched programs = Greater Impact from your $.

Proven Local Leadership

We work with proven local leadership to ensure there is accountability and stewardship.

Make A Difference On Your Own Time.

Help The HIV Orphans Of Africa Today!

By joining our virtual team, you can contribute your many talents in a more flexible way. Time and location are no longer restrictions that prevent concerned world citizens from making an impact. Our volunteers can contribute after dinner from their own homes, during a short lunch break from the office, whenever and wherever it is convenient! In this way we hope to recruit the many different skills of diverse individuals and combine them to battle this HIV/AIDS epidemic.
