The Wednesday Post – Saturday edition (27/11/2010)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that HIV-AIDS is one of the biggest killers worldwide. About 2 million people each year are killed by HIV. Imagine an endless line of family cars riding up a volcano. Once every minute, a car containing 3 or 4 men, women or children drive off the lip of the crater to their deaths. This is what HIV is doing every day. How can we stop this senseless death?
