HIV/AIDS Commission makes appeal

Web Posted - Fri Aug 20 2004
By Petal Barclay-Smith

THE National HIV/AIDS Commission is appealing to the Barbadian Community to lend their support to improving the quality of life of persons infected and affected with HIV/AIDS by contributing to the Commission’s Food Bank.

Director of the Commission Alies Jordan said that one of the Commission’s biggest challenges is being able to constantly keep the food bank’s shelves full in an effort of distributing nutritionally balanced food hampers to their clients.

And it is in this regard that AJA, who officially launched his CD ‘Deception’ yesterday, said that all sales from the CD will go towards beefing up the food bank.

At the launch which took place at the HIV/AIDS Commission, AJA said that his new CD was inspired by his international campaign against war and poverty and by poems that would be published in his book ‘Don’t Let Me Die’.

His poetry has been fused with music to create a unique sound. It was arranged, recorded, mixed, mastered and produced by Mark Roule and is being distributed by Jetstar Phonographic, London, England.

Aja hopes that ‘Deception’ will inspire people around the world to get involved in activities to eradicate poverty in their countries as well as in activities to create peace on Earth.

However, the HIV/AIDS director asserted that Aja is championing the cause for HIV/AIDS regionally and internationally and that in South America he had interacted with several orphaned and vulnerable children.

Noting that there is a link between HIV/AIDS and poverty, especially as it relates to the socio-economic impact of the epidemic, Jordan added that the HIV/AIDS epidemic is deceiving and that there is a definite link between what Aja is trying to do and promoting HIV/AIDS awareness internationally.

“We are always very pleased to be working with people like Aja who has an understanding of what it is we are trying to do and is willing to step out and help us to achieve our objective”, Jordan contended.

She revealed that the Food Bank is committed to providing nutritional services to people living with HIV/AIDS by assisting those individuals and their children in meeting their basic food need through distributing nutritionally balanced food hampers, providing liquid supplements, nutritional counselling and nutritional education on food safety, fitness and budgeting food bills.
