The 2nd Annual AIDS Race happened on the 14th of July. With over 200 runners and participants in attendance. We see this as a huge success of the previous year not only in attendance, good weather but also how members of the various communities came out in full to support the event.
After a lot of awareness which included visiting schools, sharing flyers, radio and tv mentions and not forgetting setting up a stand at the venue grounds, on the D-Day we had members of the Ghana AIDS Commission and the Cape Coast Metropolis Assembly all present. The day started with aerobic and warm up and then the start. The runners follow the same route as last year.
At the finish line there was a mini carnival section going on with music and dance. After the race, more than 200 persons got tested for HIV. There was also free eye test which was provided through the support of Darlinstar Opticals. Other supporters included; Oasis Beach resort, Berlyn Office Equipment, Franko Phones, Swanswan & sons, Oceanview Internet, Coastal water and a host of others.
We want to say a big thank you to you all. Next race is July 13, 2014. Email us at AIDSRACEGHANA@gmail.com to register to run, jog, walk, volunteer, support or sponsor a person or the event.
For some time now the boys has been training both on and off the soccer pitch. We have been able to have a couple of them shoot their training session so that you can see their sills level.
Currently we are still maintaining the few boys and girls who have enrolled for the program. Although we have been able to acquire things which are needed for their educational session, we are still far behind when it comes to athletic gears, especially for the girls.
We are still appealing to all donors to continue to support this project. Remember that your generous donations will go a long way in making the life of these boys and girls better.
We are also looking for inkind donation. If you would like to give in kind, kindly contact us through email for more information on how you can send in your donation. Email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Since we started giving out free bed nets and registering the children of the Amanful community under the National Health Insurance Scheme, we are proud to announce to you that there has been no child death in the community! The infection rate has also droped!
This is a fight we are determine to win, but note that we can not do this alone. We need your help! Still!!!
More funds for acquiring more nets are not forthcoming. Currently as this is been typed, there are eight new young mothers who have registered to receive free bed net from us. Their babies is at risk as they currently do not sleep under treated bed net.
In addition, other child related illness like chicken pox, measles etc are still rampant and accessing treeatment for children who are yet to be register under the National Health Insurance Scheme is proving difficult for the mothers who continously come to our office asking when is the next batch of registration.
We are thereofre appealing to all donors, present and future, to come to the aid of these mothers and their children. We can not do this alone, as together we can make it.
