Unite for Children

In the 21st century we still live in a world of contrasts and extremes and these factors are simply governed by where a person is born and raised. Here in the west we expect quality health care as a given right, but to a mother and child living in the shadow of HIV/AIDS in Africa receiving any health care is a true blessing.

In the Netherlands, a country blessed with prosperity, this way of life is highlighted by the lifestyle of Renate Verbaan – a glamorous model and TV celebrity. However underneath this glamorous exterior, Renate is a mother of a newborn child and has a committed passion for the work of Unicef.

Renate wants to deepen her knowledge and compassion about what it means to another mother to share hope for a new child: a child who is an innocent casualty of the stigma of HIV/AIDS.

During a life-changing passage of discovery, Renate will also experience the day-to-day work of a dedicated Unicef team as they diagnose transmissions and administer potentially life-saving medication. This program is known as Preventing Mother-To-Child Transmission or PMTCT.

In an honest, upfront and emotional journey against the background of a country in turmoil, Renate will truly experience the meaning of Hope as she witnesses, first hand, the work of a team of dedicated doctors and staff who give their energy to save the lives of children.
