Westlake OVC’s World AIDS Day event

12 Dec

The children had a special day on Thurs 29 Nov – Arlene and Benita organised a Pick A Box / Quiz about HIV/Aids, then whoever wanted to, lit a candle in memory of someone who has died, and then we set off 50 balloons with messages on. (The south easter took them off at 50km/hr in the direction of Table Mountain!) One child was upset as her older sister had just died, one of the leaders had to rush off because a family member had died, and then we heard that one of our home based care clients had died in hospital – so 3 in one day…

Anyway, amongst the tears there was much laughter and fun.
