A PROGRESSIVE REPORT FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER, 2014
27nd DECEMBER, 2014
The Organization spent the early part of December in planning for the celebrations for People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHIA) as part of campaigning and championing for their rights. After the activity which was a huge success we reviewed the same and made a follow up of the stakeholders who had attended as guests and members of PLWHA. Majority had already traveled up country for December festive season.
The celebrations took place on 9th December, 2014 as scheduled at the Word of life Church in Kariobangi which gave us a free venue for the celebrations.
The main goal of the event was to give part of our members (PLWHIA) a forum for celebration in this December festive season and sharing their challenges and experiences. It also provided an opportunity to engage the government to seriously look into the issues of health especially HIV/AIDS in Korogocho and the neighboring estates.
The event started at 9.30am and ended at 2.00pm and this is the summary of what took place during that day.
