For World Aids Day we worked in conjunction with the police station next to Beautiful Gate and some local social workers. We performed a little skit about having hope while living with HIV. 1 in 4 people here are infected with HIV so it is important that while we raise awareness about how to prevent HIV infection, we also encourage those living with HIV that they can still have a full and happy life. ARV treatment makes it possible now for people to live much longer and to remain healthier for longer.
Our verse we quoted in the skit is 1 John 4:18 "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear."
If you didn't know it was World Aids Day on December 1, I reccommend taking time to think about what HIV/Aids means in your life and what part you can play in helping to raise awareness and stopping the spread of this pandemic!
