I am on a mission and dare you to care.

 

I suppose you think you don’t know anyone who is HIV Positive……..Surprise, Surprise, how wrong you can be?

 

This may well be the most important item you read today.

 

It may possibly be your neighbour, your best friend, an aunt, your brother, a cousin, a colleague, parent or even YOUR partner! Anyone could potentially be HIV+, yes, true story.

 

The fact of the matter is, you do know someone, and they may just not have disclosed their status as yet. Why? Because of the prejudice surrounding the virus and we all hate to be “judged”, don’t we?

 

You may be thinking; how does this affect me? Well, I personally put my fear in my pocket and made it my mission to make others aware of the pitfalls and the available support by sharing first-hand knowledge by undertaking to do talks and presentations around the country, adding value to individuals as well as group counselling, to those open enough to be concerned, gain knowledge and NOT judge.

 

Because of the nature of the virus, I have experienced the emotional and physical turmoil of my HIV positive status. I was never offered any support to speak of and had no idea where to go. I literally felt my life had fallen out from under me.

 

My mission is NOT to allow these regular people, just like you, to live with that outlook and fear. Without pointing fingers, which we know does not change anything; frequently find these human beings are unable to finance the cover of a consultation and receive the support they so badly require before going back into the world, misinformed or untutored, living positively or negatively without pre or post counselling.

 

It is still heard that the ‘black and gay populace have ‘AIDS’, how sad Mr & Mrs X. The HI virus is widespread throughout the human race, be it White, Black, Indian, Coloured or the rest of the human race.

 

No-one goes out purposely to get infected, trust me! Nor did I, it happens, be open, take heed; it could be someone close to you next time. If this message is not continued out there, with a 1000 new infections daily, it’s a possibility/probability that this trend will continue. Prevention and support can only be achieved with the participation of the community and nation at large.

 

By showing your support and empathy to the cause, you could assist in maintaining the many projects structured through the counselling centre, based in and around the country which remain vital to the wellbeing and survival of many people whether face to face, social media or through telephone access.

 

The counselling centre is based in Pinetown, KwaZulu Natal, started in January 2011 and has been sustained by my family and close friends, however, the time has now come for the lease to be renewed for a further 12 months and we wish to continue sharing the message. By requesting your assistance to what may not be your problem, but a cause that you too could support, we anticipate giving hope to many.

 

To make a difference in some small way, please find attached a Debit Order Form that can be returned to the below listed details or find the bank details for a once off donation.

 

Feel free to share this email, much appreciated. Having shared our message we thank you in advance for your support.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Cindy

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.

SHARE THIS MESSAGE – I DARE YOU TO CARE

 ‘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.

The planned tour route.

NOW FOR MY CONTROVERSY ACT

On 12 September, 2012, in Health and Wellness, Resource, Uncategorized, by Cindy Pivacic

I find it intriguing and somewhat overwhelming that so many people are eager (admirable I might add) to support a cause. On one site over 6,290 people ‘like’ the page of a beautiful animal but when it come to the human race, that’s us; you, me, your brother, sister, mom, dad, aunt, uncle, cousin and the list goes on, are not nearly as important a cause to support.

Is it FEAR, ignorance or just plain……………..it’s them not me?

What has happened to your compassion for the human race, pray tell, I would love to hear.

I can guarantee you, you may not know it but someone you know IS living with the HI virus but because they are fearful of rejection they choose not to share their status with you.

Eventually they find themselves in poor health with nobody to turn to and guess what? They seek out others like themselves and hope for the best! OR they also become…….EXTINCT.

Not everyone has ’brought it upon themselves’ as some will warrant their lack of support by saying.

My question to you is; what’s hidden in your closet? (before you judge, think!!) We all have something we don’t want let out of the bag. Yours is just different to mine and theirs 😉

There are organizations out there like AID My Journey-Support that are trying to be a sustaining force  and empower individuals during this unplanned phase of their lives, don’t think it will not affect you, it will in the long run.

I hope those of you that are so benevolent and concerned enough will think about your fellow men/women that also need your enormously generous goodwill.

What are you going to do?

If anyone would like more information I have some projects that I wish to get up and running which will assist in people being able to have skills to generate an ongoing income for themselves and their families.

Project 1:        Computer Skills Initiative

Project 2:        Training Support Group Facilitator Course

Thank you for taking the time to read this. May you share the care!

The objective in founding AID My Journey–Support a Non-Profit Organisation (NPO 093-243 and BEE Level 4) is to play a major role in the transformation of how HIV and AIDS is managed, providing valuable structured programmes on HIV and AIDS and programmes used to enhance individuals, employers and employees:

“Educate and empower people by providing local life skills programmes that promotes positive values, healthy habits, and education – resulting in real life power.”

A priority need for the HIV and AIDS programme, which operates daily, is funding for the offices.

AID My Journey-Support is requesting assistance to support programmes, namely;

a) Computer Skills Initiative

b) Training: Support Group Facilitator – Quality Living

These programmes will make a meaningful difference in the lives of the beneficiaries.

An ongoing contribution will give AID My Journey-Support the resources to fulfil these requirements. I believe that the HIV and AIDS programme is consistent with the mission and interest of the target market vital to public needs, and hope that you will find it in your budget to support this program.

If I can provide additional information to encourage consideration of this request, please feel free to contact me.

I am also available as an IEC (Information-Education-Communication) Speaker on HIV and AIDS.

Please feel free to share this.

Regards

Cindy
