I wish you could see the work that is going on there,
I just received this e mail from Stephanie Kilroe, who is the extraordinary lady who established Etafeni day care centre for people in the community affected by HIV. I wish you could see the work that is going on there, as I did…but at least the pictures can give you a sense of it!
“Just come back from Vrygrond where the top storey is now on to the building in which you stood. Also the walls of the second half of the centre (the wasteland where you and I stood for that pic) are going up rapidly from their foundations. Impressive. Steve Crawford of EJAF will be out here in early November and he will bring back pics for you.
So far, for the last four years, we’ve managed to keep all the HIV+ people in our care alive. Treatment is essential but decent nutrition and emotional support are the other parts of the formula, almost as important. Not rocket science”.
