Events July & Aug 2013 HIV & AIDS

On 1 July, 2013, in Events, Speaking Engagements, by Cindy Pivacic

One can never have too many events to create awareness around HIV & AIDS and if you think you know everything on the subject, have I got news for you….I have been living with the virus for almost 9 years and barely a week goes by that I do not learn something new.


The only way to get knowledge is to discuss the HI virus with someone in the know. Don’t assume anything and never believe everything you hear….ask!!


I have a few events coming up in Durban and Kimberley and you are more than welcome to wind your way there, for a small fee of course as I founded an organisation which assist in skills development for individuals living with the virus in order for them to generate an income so please feel free to find out more whilst supporting your communities wellbeing.


Remember the virus does not discriminate!!


OK, now that I have your attention, here are the events scheduled to date for July and August respectively:


AUGUST is Women’s Month – Join in the fun and celebration!

Book early to avoid being left OUT!!


4th July 2013 I will be addressing ‘Women of Strength’ in Amanzimtoti.


27th July 2013 is the Gold Cup Charity Fundraiser – Join us in the marquee. Get tickets from me.


1st August 2013, we will be hosting a Women’s Wellness Workshop. Three wellness issues to be addressed as well as exhibit tables so if you are interested, ask for the proposal.


6th August 2013 at Hillcrest Private Hospital. An engagement to present to staff and patients.


8th August 2013 will find me in Kimberley to present to NOCCI (Northern Cape Chamber of Commerce) a presentation for their Women’s Day.


9th August 2013 back in Durban, an event for young school ladies called ‘Winning in the Workplace’

Thank you.


A Hale and Hearty Greeting,


How do you feel? Great!!!


I am quite sure you think you don’t know anyone who is HIV Positive…Wrong!


Continue reading if you have a concern for your fellow human.


Your neighbour, best friend, aunt, brother, cousin, colleague, parent and even YOUR partner may be HIV+, true story. The fact of the matter is you do know someone, they just may not have disclosed their status as yet because of the prejudice surrounding the virus.


You think it may not affect you but it does and it will. Isn’t it nice to know that someone out there living with the virus, that will be me, put their fear in their pocket and went public so that others may benefit with the knowledge and talks presented, sometimes for a fee but mostly not and that includes individual counselling and presentations to corporates who have access to do so.


I am not pointing fingers as most of these individuals do not have the funds to cover a consultation and I can’t allow them to go back into the world misinformed or uneducated either living positively or negatively without pre or post counselling.


‘Black and gay people have AIDS’ REALLY!!! I hear this still, how sad Mr & Mrs X. The HI virus is widespread throughout the human race. HIV does not discriminate. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor, Rich, Poor, middle-class, White, Black, Indian, coloured and the rest of humanity, the virus doesn’t care. I didn’t go out purposely to get infected, trust me! Nor did most people, it happens, Deal With It’.


Take heed, it could be someone close to you next if the message is not continued out there, with a 1000 new infections daily, it’s a possibility/probability. Prevention can only be achieved with the support of the community and nation at large.


Show some empathy and assist in maintaining the counselling centre as the projects that are in progress are paramount to the wellbeing and survival of many people.


The time has come for the lease to be renewed at the counselling centre and I am deliberating as to whether to sign for another 12 months or not.


The centre has been sustained purely out of my own pocket and that of my family and close friends….no more!


Harsh, yes, that’s me……I hope that you have got the message loud and clear as it is not something you want or wish on anyone.


Lastly, feel free to share what you comfortably are able to. Consider contributing to the organisation as it will be most appreciated by many.


By way of contributing, please find attached Debit Order Form (R50 – R100 or much much, more) 😉 and banking details should you wish to make an EFT contribution.


Many thanks, yours in sharing.

 ‘Take Responsibility – Take Action’

Do YOU Support this initiative? – What can YOU do?

Companies and individuals lend your name to creating awareness!


‘HIVenture-Tour de Life’ aims to spread the word not the virus by promoting change in the lifestyle of South Africans to rapidly decrease the rate of infections.


The disease is still spreading with 1000 new infection daily in South Africa.


HIV and AIDS awareness has been neglected in the media over the past months adding to the decline of in-house awareness within the South African workplace.


Access to information for employers and employees is inadequate.


Focus will be on the corporate as well as public sector to increase information and dispel misconceptions by give personal testimony and mentorship.


“To mobilise and empower the South African business sector as well as the population at large to take effective action on HIV and AIDS”.

•Create an understanding of how HIV is transmitted in an attempt to curb the ongoing spread of the disease.


•Educate through experience and personal testimony of living with HIV and AIDS.


•Create awareness on how HIV and AIDS affects us all as a global community, infected or affected.


•Promote the view that those living with HIV and AIDS require understanding and consideration rather than judgment with a stigma attached to it as no one ‘deserves’ this disease.


Having counselled individuals and facilitated support groups living with HIV & AIDS, Cindy realises that more needs to be done to eradicate the stigma still attached to the virus.


This issue is preventing individuals from ‘coming out’ about their status and securing essential treatment and support.
