OLIVE LEAF Foundation was very active on Wolrd Aids day in 2010.
On the 1st December 2010 OLF Alexandra was invited by Barloworld Company to commemorate World Aids Day. The Prevention and HIV Counseling and Testing Teams facilitated the event.
OLF promoted HIV counselling and testing, provided pre and post test counseling and conducted discussion groups on male reproductive health, reducing multiple sex partners and condom usage. The theme for the day: STOP AIDS: Keep the promise.
On the same day the HIV care and support team commemorated World Aids Day at the East Bank clinic in Alexandra. The event started with candle light to remember all the HIV heroes and heroines.
In December 2010 it was an honor for Zandspruit OLIVE LEAF Foundation to be given an opportunity to host as most memorable ceremony in Zandspruit at one of the schools.
Zandspruit OLIVE LEAF Foundation and Masakhane primary school held a very successful Candle Light Ceremony with Zandspruit Clinic staff. Over 120 learners attended it as well. In terms of sponsorship for the day two of our big OLIVE LEAF Foundation partners, Spar supermarket, and Zandspruit Hyper, donated two boxes of candle light candles.
The ceremony was started with a prayer from one of our pastors. The master of ceremony was the operational manager from Zandspruit clinic. Each and every one was given a candle before the ceremony started. T-Shirts were donated by REPSSI.
