We have an encouraging report from Khartoum of the first two HIV/AIDS awareness outreaches in the outskirts of Khartoum and Omdurman which were attended in all by 188 people, many of them women, who had earlier attended a literacy class in Wad el Bashir.

The TFS volunteers worked with volunteers from our local partner, the Babiker Badri Scientific Association, to deliver messages about HIV/AIDS, prevention, living with HIV/AIDS and caring for affected people.

The messages are delivered through a mixture of talks, discussion, role plays and use of posters and pamphlets. The participants asked a number of good questions which showed their awareness of the importance of the subject. Six further outreaches are planned over the coming three months. We shall be seeking new funding to enable us to continue the project into the New Year.
