It began with an amazing young lady named Morgan Jayne who passed away suddenly at the young age of 18. From great loss sometimes great gains are borne. With determination, Morgan’s father Fred decided to keep his daughter’s spirit and memory alive by starting THE MORGAN JAYNE CHILDREN’S PROJECT. The project’s initial focus was on stopping the mother-to-infant transmission of HIV by providing baby formula to nursing mothers. Due to these efforts, there is now a 0% transmission rate with women in the project.
There has been great growth and change since the project first started, and we have now evolved into The MORGAN JAYNE CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION. We have been able to expand our efforts and reach many more families and children – many of those whose lives were saved because of a can of formula provided by the project in Morgan’s name – a beautiful testament of a father’s love for his daughter, a father who took the heartbreak of death, and turned it into life.
