Connecting local responses around the world
As yet another round of the calendar comes it is yet another special moment and reminder to all that 7th May 2011 is Word AIDS Orphans Day, a grassroots campaign to draw attention to and advocate on behalf of the more than 16 million children orphaned by AIDS. World AIDS Orphans Day was founded in 2002 by FXB International.
The Legacy Explorers humbly joint the honourable initiative in the most humble manner and voiced our voice, tabled our commitment and appeal to all on behalf of about 16 millions to take a day to feel the emotion and the sentiment of the infected & Affected and finally being orphaned by AIDS, leaving them under the uncertain care of the world with little or no basic needs of human-being. The story cannot end with uncertainty, for we are created in the image of God which includes Love and care, we network for a better society and this is where we have hope for our 16 millions and other unaccounted orphans or otherwise we still wait for another millions to open our eyes as quoted by KOFI ANNAN;
“The global HIV/AIDS epidemic is an unprecedented crisis that requires an unprecedented response. In particular it requires solidarity -- between the healthy and the sick, between rich and poor, and above all, between richer and poorer nations. We have 30 million orphans already. How many more do we have to get, to wake up?" --- Kofi Annan
Now that we need to put a halt and reverse the HIV/AIDS and so do the AIDS orphans and most importantly and the most deadly virus which we normally carry along in our mind in most of the circumstances is Stigma and Discrimination which we really need to do away with. Today let this AIDS orphans Day bring us another tablet to heal us from the infection of Stigma & Discriminations Virus.
