Its been a LONG TIME

I have about 7 minutes to tell you about about 2 months of activites....and I'm struggling to find the words. I in the midst of an HIVAIDS revolution...that may be the most important event going on in my life.I have villagers talking to villagers openly about Aids-kind of a grassroots movement where women are talking to women at homes and the duka...they are realizing that they do have a chance at life-that they can live a long time if they make good life choices....There are 2 local NGO's that I'm working with-they are rebuilding the mission hopital I live by and are looking at trying to make a CTC(for those of you who do not know what that is-its a place where HIV/AIDs patients can go and receive treatment for oppurtunistic infections as well as get the ARV's..the med's) They have already opened an orphanage and are giving bus fares for those villagers who cannot afford to go to town(which is 53K away) where the nearest local CTC is. I have so much more to say about this..but no, I'm going to leave you wondering...and hopefully get a flahsdrive soon, so upload my LONG blog i wrote at school....until another day...siku nygine. Nakupenda sana.
