Volunteer in HIV/AIDS Awareness Projects

Community Care and Support for People living with HIV/AIDS, a transitional Shelter for AIDS patients, acts as a bridge between health care institutions and patients’ families, to create awareness in the community.

HIV AIDS 1Volunteer intervention is required and very welcomed at the institution to help care for the patients who have often been left out of the social circle due to their condition.
