Unleash The Power of Our Shared Humanity To Halt The Devastation of HIV/AIDS Pandemic In Africa

The 30th of November has been declared by the Center for African Affairs and Global Peace as an African AIDS Day. This is particularly significant in the sense that the World AIDS Day is on the 1st of December-the reason for this choice is to remind the world of the urgency and the priority that the devastating AIDS situation in Africa needs. While we stand with the rest of the world to support the World’s AIDS Day we also want the world to remember that Africa bears the brunt of this pandemic more than any other region on earth. In the light of this explanation the first day being the 30th of November is the African AIDS Day and the second day being the 1st of December is the World AIDS Day.  YOU can certainly give this region the urgent attention it deserves by declaring the 30th of November as African AIDS Day and so it will be forever and ever.

Help us to address the tsunami of Africa, help us to address the 9/11 of Africa, help us to address the cold hand of Africa’s holocaust, help us to stop the killing, the maiming, the wailing and mourning that this pandemic has unleashed on Africa.
