Today, December 1st, is significant, for no other reason, than it’s World AIDS Day. Please consider giving anything you can, least of all your attention, to the fight against a completely “outrageous” and absurdly “solvable” health issue, ravaging so many individuals, sure, but entire families, too, across the globe.
What can you do? Fair question. One I’ll admit I often ask myself. And it’s a question which I can say I haven’t a fulfilling answer. But that’s just me. But you, like I have in the past, could start by visiting The Stephen Lewis Foundation and, simply, read. And if the mood should strike you, and you possess the means, you could throw a couple bucks at, what I see is, a very valuable organization, doing very important work;
“The Stephen Lewis Foundation supports community-based organizations working to turn the tide of HIV/AIDS in Africa. Since 2003, we have funded more than 300 projects in 15 countries. These grassroots groups are the lifeline for their communities: they provide counselling and education about HIV prevention, care and treatment; distribute food, medication and other necessities; reach the sick and vulnerable through home-based health care; help orphans and vulnerable children access education and work through their grief; and support grandmothers caring for their orphaned grandchildren…”
Consider it, please? Every little bit helps…
