The Cape to London AIDS Awareness Campaign (CLAAC)
... and Morocco Scheduled
In September 2002, the CLAAC
plans to leave Cape Town for London with the
sole aim of spreading AIDS Awareness across the length of the African continent.
Marc-Anthony (25), Nicole (22) and Pierre Wilkinson (19), three South African siblings who have been studying in the UK for the last four years,
and Brett Sargent (36), an overland expedition leader from Australia with
ten years of experience, intend to, with the endorsement of President Thabo
Mbeki of South Africa and several AIDS organizations worldwide, spend roughly nine months promoting AIDS Awareness in any way possible - an
awareness of an epidemic which affects more than 28.1 million adults and
children in Sub-Saharan Africa alone.
The campaign will take us from Cape Town through Namibia, Botswana, Zambia,
Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya and Ethiopia, from we where will transport the two
vehicles to Accra, Ghana. We shall then continue along the West Coast of
Africa to Morocco, into mainland Europe and back to London.
