We’ve come a long way since the days when people believed that you could contract HIV by breathing the same air as someone with HIV. We now live in a day and age where HIV-positive moms can safely breastfeed their infants. Despite recent reports of HIV-cured cases, HIV/AIDS is a battle we haven’t won yet.
The Rotaract Club of Toronto is participating in the Rotary Trump AIDS Poker Walk on April 27th and we would love the support of each of our members. This Walk has been going on for the past 6 years in Toronto and we’ve raised close to $500,000 for AIDS action.
This year the funds will go to Ongutai AIDS Clinic in Uganda and Ikhwezi Lokusa Wellness Centre in East London, South Africa. I was an Intern at Ikhwezi back in 2006 and saw firsthand the comprehensive care they provided to HIV/AIDS patients. Without clinics like Ongutai and Ikhwezi, HIV/AIDS patients will not receive the critical care, support and education they need to live healthy lives.
Please help our teams, Toronto Rotaract AIDS Trumpers! And P-P-Poker Face raise much needed funds for this worthwhile initiative. Our combined team goal is $3000. We have raised $1840 so far! Please help us exceed this goal for AIDS action!
