continent of Africa is afflicted by wars, famine, droughts and floods,
but with an estimated 28.1 million adults and children living with
HIV/AIDS, its social and economic consequences are for the most part
far more devastating. Indeed, in sub-Saharan Africa, HIV is now
deadlier than war itself and as of the year 2000, 70%of the adults and
80%of the children, that is nine in every ten living with HIV
globally, live in Africa.
principle objective is to raise awareness.
We will set off from Cape Town in two vehicles, and embark on a campaign that will take us through South Africa to Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya and Ethiopia, from where we will transport the two vehicles to Accra, Ghana and continue along the West Coast of Africa to Morocco, into mainland Europe and back to London. We are dedicating a year of our lives to embark on this campaign, along the most viable route across the African continent, for we believe that if providing information about the enormity of this pandemic is one of the first steps in preventing its spread, then we are ready and willing to take this as our challenge!
