United Kingdom: Scheme Helps Kids to Tackle AIDS
August 18, 2008
On Aug. 27, the Church of Ireland will kick off an initiative, "Let's Go Tackle AIDS," aimed at helping children better understand the HIV/AIDS epidemic. In addition, the project will seek to raise funds to assist people in Africa affected by HIV. The launch will take place at the Diocesan Center in Londonderry, where the special guest will be Tendai Madondo, who works with the Dublin office of Christian Aid. She has more than 10 years' experience with HIV and gender issues in Africa and Europe. A workshop will be presented to help Sunday school teachers in the Derry and Raphoe diocese learn how best to present the issues surrounding HIV/AIDS to children.
