Women in riding bicycles
AKWOS sensitized women that joined the Competition of bicycle riding in the campaign to end G.B.V, awareness of H.I.V/AIDS and encouraging Voluntary Testing.
This activity It attracted 50 women and the gathering of 2000 people both men and women.
40 people participated in Voluntary Testing after a testimony from MUKAMABANO Valentine who is seropositive.
She expressed her gratitude to AKWOS that came over to sensitize the public for Voluntary Testing as it is the only way to know the HIV status.
She mentioned again that someone may not tell that he/she is HIV positive by the outside appearance. If one is found positive she should follow properly the medical instructions and have hope to live long and get encouraged that she is of value to the Development of the Country.
She said if one is found negative, she should avoid unprotected sex, using unsterilized instruments and untested blood transfusion. People living with HIV/AIDS should not be looked down upon, because they are people like any other. She ended by asking questions to the big gathering that followed Voluntary Testing.
Four(4) women/girls teams competed for 2 days and were given prizes of football balls, while women participating in bicycle riding were given medical insurance for 12 months. This encouraged many people that even if you are seropositive you can still do sports.
Dear Donors, thanks for your contribution to support empowering women through sports. We need more advice from you to help the sustainability of our organization.
