More with HIV seek aid


Added 08 August 2015


MORE BARBADIANS infected with HIV are coming forward for assistance.

So said Ingrid Miller of the National HIV/Aids Commission yesterday at a presentation that saw Cave Shepherd donate school supplies to three charities – the Progressive Optimistic Club, the Salvation Army and the Child Care Board.

The commission was asked to collect on behalf of the Child Care Board as they have worked closely with the organisation’s affected children.

“People are seeing difficult times and in any way they can come to an organisation to get help it is well appreciated,” she said.

The National HIV/Aids Commission, which was established in 2001, has developed programmes and created partnerships over the years that have helped Barbadians living with the disease. (TKS)
