Pozhet and the Lemongrove Unit organised another African Connections Day in early September. It was a great success with men and women joining together to support each other. We were lucky that the doctor who came to the first African Connections day came along again. This time we didn’t divide into men and women’s groups but all stayed together in one big mixed group. People asked all sorts of questions and Doctor Rick shared lots of information with us. It was a very supportive group and people stayed after lunch chatting in small groups.
If you an person from an African background who is positive or you have a partner or close friend from an African background who is positive you are welcome to attend this group. It is a great way to meet other people living with HIV in a relaxed and supportive environment.
We are happy to meet up with you first and have a coffee and chat so that you will know someone before attending. The next event is at the end of the year, so email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Susan on 1800 812 404 if you are interested.
If you attended the group and would like to say a few words about it feel free to leave a comment below.
