Hiv/aids Victims Being Helped

Last year saw those affected and infected by HIV/AIDs being visited by certain organization named by Aphia II.This NGO non governmental organization whose aim is to deal with health issues of the people and moreso they have involved themeselves in dealing with HIV/AIDs scourge.As witnessed, those suffering from this disease in my area are poor and had been dying just because of lack of meditation and proper care.Stigma did also contribute to these deaths. In a way of helping them, APHIA II brought basic necessities for them like food , clothing and other physical needs. They went ahead to educated the community on how to treat the victims and further advised not to treat them badly as this could contribute to social stigma.They also provided them with A>R>Vs and they are still doing the same.Atleast the victims of HIV?AIDs have hope and futhermore, something to.
