We hosted World AIDS Day at our Mercy Centre on Nov. 27 - a community-wide event that brought together six local HIV/AIDS organizations, twenty three community leaders, five government schools (400 school children) and the Thai Health Ministry Director of AIDS Programs, Dr. Piyathayda Samuphrphut. It was the perfect day to get communities and organizations working together - organizations that included The HIV/AIDS Network of Thailand, Duang Prateep Foundation, Siam Care, Emergency House, We Understand Together, and, of course, our Mercy Centre. Together we used every tool at our disposal, from computers to sports to puzzles and games, in teaching the school children about prevention, understanding, and compassion. Please see our gallery of this event for more details.
