Showing love for those with HIV/AIDS
BARBADIANS?LENT their support to the HIV/AIDS food bank on Saturday as they donated items and money when the Barbados Government Information Service’s (BGIS)?Love Poetry And Song team drove across the island.
The DAILY?NATION caught up with the rally team at Clapham, Christ Church, on their way to Tony’s Snack Bar and Restaurant where people handed over items to assist people living with or affected by HIV.
BGIS officer Sharifa Medford said her team was in the community to raise awareness and collect non-perishable food items and toiletries outside of the Love, Poetry And Song show, which comes off on Saturday.
“We figured that not everyone can make it to the show and they may still want to make a donation, so we are going through the communities to those people,” Medford said.
She expressed gratitude to all those who gave donations, even though they got off to a late start and would have missed some people who were waiting at particular spots at the allocated times.
She said donations could also be made by calling the BGIS.
