Each December as part of World AIDS Week we take the opportunity to highlight our activities in AIDS prevention and help bust myths around HIV and AIDS working with our existing beneficiaries to further educate on the facts, including prevention, care, treatment and the counselling we offer, government schemes, self-employment options and health issues while also gaining a better understanding of the problems and issues experienced by people living with HIV and AIDS (PLHA).
Living with HIV brings various challenges, perhaps the hardest of which is living with the stigma it brings. Finding a suitable marriage and family who accept you is already huge task for anyone. Factor in HIV and AIDS and being an orphan or rejected by your family and community and the chances of finding a suitable match can seem impossible. Therefore, our annual program includes a unique match-making event for people living with HIV/AIDS.
