As a follow up from my last post about Brent Stirton I wanted to link to an article just published at PDNonline decribing Brent’s coverage of HIV around the world, in particular in locations where no public programs to prevent and care for the disease exist. Yesterday, December 1st, was the World AIDS day. The statistics of the AIDS/HIV pandemic are tragic, this is one of the biggest humanitarian crises of our time. There are many ways to contribute to the fight against HIV in the third world. Both Mercy Corps and Care, have campaings to fight the AIDS/HIV epidemics.
“Am I hopeful? I move in and out. I’m chucking my 50 cents into the ring here, that’s what I’m doing. I’d like to stand for something. I’d like to have some values. And this is the clearest domain for me to enact these values.”- Brent Stirton
