Categories: News | Tags: | Posted on November 30, 2015

The ASK HER talk held in Edmonton on November 23, was a unique opportunity to hear first hand from African women directly involved in supporting and building communities affected by HIV and AIDS.  Despite wintry winds and snow,  people from Edmonton and area came out to listen and to learn about current conditions in Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Kenya and South Africa.

GANG members enjoyed an informal meal with our African sisters on November 24, and were moved and inspired by their passion and commitment to the people in their communities.

 

A delicious meal was shared by GANG members, SLF staff and our African sisters.
