the need to eat every day is always on our minds
Thank you so much for your valuable support to our Give Me Another Chance project. I am unusually writing this on behalf of Daniel Marungu, Chief Exec of Tiba Africa Foundation whose inspiration and ongoing passion created this very successful project. Daniel is currently rather unwell and receiving treatment at a Government hospital at Eldoret, 300 km from Nairobi where there is currently no internet connection. The breath ambassadors are doing such a great job supporting people in the community who are struggling with their AIDS/HIV status that he's not worried about leaving them for a while. Even while he is ill, he is thinking of their needs and arranging to buy lap tops and mobile phones so they can keep in touch with each other and their community more easily. He is also looking at ways of expanding this project and training more ambassadors - more about this when Daniel is back on his feet. Daniel and the whole Board of Tiba are very proud of this project and how they are striving to overcome stigma and discrimination which distorts people's understanding and ability to seek help. I will never forget when I visited Nairobi how the Vice Chair of Tiba stood up in a public meeting and announced very movingly and bravely his own family's personal situation with regard to AIDS. This was the core seed that has kept Tiba motivated and focussed in undertaking this challenging work.
Thank you for your love and on-going support
European Patron of Tiba Africa Foundation and Secretary of Tiba Africa Support
