Since 2001 TIAS ARMS has been dedicated to raising funds for the most vulnerable children in South Africa.


“Do all you can with what you have, in the time you have, in the place you are.”

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”


Nelson Mandela

The HIV/AIDS crisis continues to devastate the children of South Africa. Children are orphaned, abandoned, and left to fend for themselves and their siblings. TIAS ARMS supports grass roots organizations in the poorest regions of South Africa that work tirelessly to protect, educate, feed, and empower children to have healthy and prosperous futures.

Here’s how you can help today:



Monthly Giving for a Sustainable Future
Generous One-Time Donation



Just $75 will provide food for 20 children for five months!

In 2021 to date, TIAS ARMS has distributed $82,249 in grants to our supported agencies. The chart above represents the allocation of funds by category.

Our goal for 2022 is to fund $100,000 in grants to help children in South Africa impacted by HIV and now COVID-19. The children, the staff who work with them 24 hours a day, and the TIAS ARMS Board and volunteers thank you for your ongoing gifts, without which lives would not be saved.
