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.
