Face AIDS, a student campaign to fight HIV/AIDS in Ghana on Tuesday, 1st December, 2009 donated food items and a cash amount to People Living with HIV/AIDS at the Tetteh Quarshie Memorial Hospital.
The student group is a chapter based at African University College of Communication. In a short speech by the chapter President, Mr. Dennis Moot assured the patients not to worry nor develop some kind of fear since all hopes are not lost. He also pleaded with the Hospital Authority to make room for vocational training for people living HIV/AIDS which will be a source of income for them.
This will go a long way, to reduce the rate at which infected persons feel dejected and always expecting help from benevolent individuals, organization and corporate entities.
The Deputy Director of Nurses, Madam Mary Nartey, has thanked the chapter on behalf of the hospital and promised to make good use of the items presented. She also used this opportunity to plead to other philanthropist to give a helping hand.
Members of the club partake in the celebration of the World Aids Day grand durbar at Jacksons Park, Koforidua, organized by the National AIDS Commission.
