Why

Why Should We Care?

Why should we care about HIV/AIDs? Why not cancer, tuberculosis, diabetes, or heart disease?

FOR THE VERY SIMPLE REASON:

HIV carries with it a stigma and shame, but it is preventable. We cannot prevent many diseases that plague mankind, but we know how abstinence from having multiple sex partners, monogamy, and condoms can go a long way toward stopping HIV in its tracks.

“And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”
