Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Stigms Kills

Liverpool VCT came to our community last year and they taught us about HIV/AIDS. After the meeting we were really comforted and knew we are either infected or affected and we should not discriminate. They taught us everything about HIV/AIDS how one acquires it, how to prevent it, and how we should live with it. They have a 24 hr helpline for anyone who wants help or visit their website at Liverpool They taught us about good condom. They taught us that people with hiv/AIDS should be treated with respect and care and they should have equal opportunities. They left us with reading materials and packs of the condom for those who wanted and they left with the condoms for those who wanted and they left with the message that even if infected it is not the end. people have been known to live for over 20 years with the virus.
