Since World Aids Day is coming soon on 1 Dec 2012, I would like to share with my readers this event on ‘Walk With Me’ at Orchard – Scape warehouse from 2pm to 6pm. Visit http://www.aidswalk.sg to view the details of the event.
AIDS Walk 2012 walking towards zero new infections, zero deaths, zero stigma and discrimination. Registration is free for taking part in this walking event. I am sure many people can be very fearful of HIV positive patients or patient diagnosed with AIDS and even sitting or walking near them.
I would like to recap that AIDS cant be spread while having a meal together or even walk together on the streets. It only can be spread through exchange body fluids via sexual activity or open wounds and infected needles.
You also can donate some money to help these AIDS patients as the medication for treatment for AIDS is indeed very expensive. Some of the money will be used for subsiding their medications so that they can live longer. Donations which are $50 and above will be available for tax deduction. To allow tax deduction, please include your NRIC, FRIN or RCB number and full name.
Still can remember my previous post on :
Patient Care Centre at Tan Tock Seng Hospital – Communicable Disease Centre 1 do sell quite a number of nice handicrafts for raising funds for HIV positive patients. All proceeds of the sales items will go to Patient care centre. If you are interested to purchase them for gifts or yourself, you can go to 1 of the stall located near Kopitiam at Tan Tock Seng Hospital main atrium area level 1 or email to email@example.com to order them.
I also mentioned about Prevention is better than cure. It is best to prevent with ABC which are:
A – Abstain from having casual sex
B – Be faithful to your partner
C – Use Condom Correctly

I also hope that more people will be aware of this and understand more about this. Do spread this message to your friends and family as well.
