United Kingdom Adult Scout and Guide Alliance and UNICEF
The United Kingdom Adult Scout and Guide Alliance has joined with UNICEF to help in the continuing fight against HIV and AIDS. The disease is now the largest killer in sub-Saharan Africa in countries such as Uganda and Kenya. Those who die from AIDS are mainly people in the prime of their lives leaving children as orphans and vulnerable.
The Alliance is asking members to use October 25th (Fellowship Day) to help youngsters and their families affected by AIDS.
Every minute 6 young people are infected with HIV. Please try to help.
