With the international theme of this year’s World AIDS Day being “Communities Make The Difference” HACT is inviting its friends, donors and partners from around the world to join its team in commemorating this special day which this year takes place on Sunday, the 1st December 2019.
“HACT will be opening its doors in the week leading up to this year’s World AIDS Day with a special line-up of events and activities on offer to those looking to play their part by volunteering their time and skills” Candace Davidson, HACT CEO
This year’s World AIDS Day theme aims to celebrate the essential role that communities have and continue to play in the response to HIV and AIDS and recognize it’s crucial importance, particularly at the present time when there is an ever shrinking pot of funding and support available to sustain the kind of life-saving HIV prevention, education and care services which organisations such as HACT are delivering at a grassroots level.
“Working alongside the communities we serve has always been an integral part of HACT’s approach to ensuring our projects remain relevant and respond to the needs of local people infected and affected by the disease. However, World AIDS Day is also an opportunity for our wider community who are perhaps less affected to learn about the disease and find ways to give back in their own capacity. HACT continues to offer essential services within our communities, and we invite our communities to join together to make a difference.” Candace Davidson, HACT CEO
Volunteering opportunities available at HACT will include assisting in the centre’s Plant Nursery and Woza Moya arts and crafts programme, preparing meals for patients in the 24-bed Respite Unit as well as community-based activities such as painting and revamp projects at local schools and creches.
