Fighting ignorance with tea

Volunteers with the Cayman AIDS Foundation are celebrating the progress they’re making on fighting discrimination and increasing public education about HIV and AIDS.

The group held its 4th annual tea party at the town hall in George Town this past Saturday, reaffirming its mission to stop the spread of sexually transmitted infections and end the stigma that leads people to shun others with STDs and AIDS. “I think people are now realising that AIDS is not a death sentence. Just because you have AIDS doesn’t mean I can’t hug you or can’t touch you. Education is key to everything, so learning about this virus can make you a better person,” said Noel Cayasso Smith.

The most recent figures indicate around 60 people in Cayman live with the HIV virus or AIDS.  The Cayman AIDS Foundation gives support and guidance to anyone with HIV or AIDS or the people close to them.
