"CRY MY BELOVED COUNTRY"

The nation of Cameroon has been going through  a civil crisis for past two years now.
 Unfortunately, things are only getting worse. I hope and pray it doesn't get any worse.

International news outlet are only touching on the surface of the issue, others have made an attempt to bring to light the genocide that is happening. It is also sad to note that no help can be expected from the International bodies responsible for crisis.

The whole nation has to be wiped out like in the case of Rwanda , before aid will arrive.
There is an African proverb that says "When two elephants fight , the grass suffers" This directly relates to the kids who will be left behind after all their parents have been killed by opposing forces.

This type of killings should not be happening in modern times.
Please pray for my nation.


Thanks

Support Group !

Hello readers out there.
I have attended several meetings in recent time talking about the progress that has been made in the world of HIV/AIDS.

One thing keeps coming up, and that is  the fact that people living with the disease still have to deal with stigmatization.
 This is a big problem everywhere but especially in Sub-Saharan Africa. Despite all the progress that has been made with medicine , people still refuse to go get treatment for fear of identification.

because patients are being ostracized , I feel the need to have a support group for folks in this region.
I am hoping to get people informed , build their self esteem and simply make them feel human again.

For those that are caregivers , we should lead my example , showing love and support to family members , friends and the community at large. I know there are several support/focus groups out there, but I wanted to tailor this to care givers and just the general public.

My question to you is , do you think this will be a good idea? 
Your response , questions  and comments will be greatly appreciated.


You can reply through this block  , our website or our email.

The future of HIV and AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa



Tackling the HIV epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa is a long-term task that requires sustained effort and planning from both domestic governments and the international community.

Moreover, HIV prevention campaigns that have been successful in sub-Saharan Africa need to be repeated, but also scaled up, especially in response to the 2013 World Health Organization guidelines.


As the HIV epidemic develops, countries in sub-Saharan Africa will need to assess how to allocate what are currently limited treatment resources. 

There are also more fundamental barriers to overcome, particularly HIV-related stigma and discrimination, the issue of gender inequality and HIV-specific criminal legislation. 

Removing such barriers would encourage more people to get tested and seek out treatment, reducing the burden of HIV across the region.

Much to my surprise , I have come to learn that stigmatization is very common in the western world as well. In the US there are several programs that a re set to address this problem so as to promote care for those living with HIV/AIDS.

While attending a meeting sponsored by Gilead pharmaceuticals, we were encouraged to pay attention to this issue . As human service workers , it is crucial to take care of the whole person , not just medical but social needs.

Giving Day !

Today The Red Cross reminds us to give and make an impact.
 Help a family today and everyday.
The act of kindness and giving should be something we strife to achieve daily.

So today is just a reminder. Every little act of kindness goes a long way, in making a difference in the life of someone in need.

Remain blessed.

"Charity and love are the same"


Just a reminder to go out and do good deeds this new year. Hope you all had a great start. Continue with love and kindness, and the world around you will be a better place.
HAPPY 2018.



“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”


Love is not patronizing and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same — with charity you give love, so don’t just give money but reach out your hand instead.”– Mother Teresa,



Remain blessed !
