A CHARITABLE EXHIBITION SUNDAY JUNE 21ST 2009 TALKING STONES 2009 SHONA-SCULPTURE PAINTINGS BY PATTI BOULAYE SUPPORT FOR AFRICA Today, the number of HIV/AIDS sufferers in the world and in particular, Sub-Saharan Africa is at an all time high. According to research carried out by AVERT, an estimated 22 million adults and children were living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa by the end of 2007. During that year, an estimated 1.5 million Africans died from AIDS. The epidemic has left behind some 11.6 million orphaned African children. Many factors contribute to fuelling the rapid rise of AIDS in Africa, but none worse than ignorance on the topic itself. Support for Africa was formed to help Africa find a solution in the fight against the spread of HIV/AIDS and Malaria through education and awareness with an emphasis on prevention. Six years ago Patti visited Nigeria, she went to an orphanage where she held a one-year-old baby called Victor - he had full-blown AIDS. He was just one of the many abandoned HIV babies waiting to die. It broke Patti's heart. Watching babies like Victor die but feeling powerless to do something as this disease raged on, feeding on ignorance and prejudices, led Patti to form Support for Africa with Stephen Komlosy. Support For Africa's objectives are aimed at preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS and Malaria in the whole sub-Sahara Africa, firstly, with a campaign of building clinics all over Africa, and secondly, through education and awareness. The clinics will provide education and some practical alleviation for those suffering from the disease and opportunistic ailments. Support For Africa has organised two major star studded concerts at the Royal Albert Hall featuring 3000 gospel voices, resulting in the building of clinics in Africa, three clinics have been built in three states in Nigeria and a fourth in Cameroon where the fifth clinic will be completed this summer.
