Because many people do not know how HIV/AIDS is spread, the workers focused their campaign on education. In addition to leading a march, the team of 200 believers offered personal counseling as well as booklets and other educational materials.
There is no cure for HIV, but the disease’s progress can be slowed by various medicines. Because of this, these Christians are committed to not only educating the public, but also making sure HIV/AIDS patients get the care and support they need to live long lives.
As the rally began, one pastor called on the public to support government and charitable efforts to build a healthy state and an awareness of AIDS.
Explaining the team’s efforts, he quoted Exodus 15:26, which speaks of “the Lord who heals you.” The passage motivates them to improve the healthcare and general well-being of all the nation’s citizens.
The rally was well received and extended to 11 Bridge of Hope centers, where 1,200 children also attended special programs.
