CARE For AIDS to Host “Experience”
CARE for AIDS is hosting Experience, a kickoff event at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 22 at the Baptist Student Union, to recruit Truman students to partner with CFA’s work with HIV/AIDS care centers in Kenya.
At the event there will be a performance by the African Students’ Association, and a Kenyan meal will be served. There will also be an activity where students will have the opportunity to “experience” what it would be like to be a Kenyan living with HIV/AIDS. CARE for AIDS wants to encourage all students who attend to partner with them as a student ambassador.
“We believe that this organization is truly making a difference and we want to make as much of an impact as we can,” executive director Lisa Adams said. “To make this happen we need as many students involved with CFA as possible.”
Sign ups to become a student ambassador will be available at Experience. Student ambassadors will be asked to help fundraise for CARE for AIDS in order to support CFA’s care centers. Every student ambassador will receive a free T-shirt and the student who raises the most money will be awarded an iPad.
CARE for AIDS care centers provide food, medical counseling and spiritual support to those who have contracted the HIV/AIDS virus.
This CARE for AIDS event is sponsored by K-Life.
