My friend Claire and I are planning to go to Ghana in January to buy beds for women living with HIV. Claire has spent a fair amount of time in Ghana volunteering on a project to help women with HIV. These women live as outpatients in villages around Ghana and must keep their HIV a secret to avoid being cast out of their communities. Claire has met, photographed and spent time with these women and decided that she wanted to do something more to help them but what could she do? Finally, after some consultation Claire decided to try and buy beds for the women as they sleep on the floor and the cold increases their risk of catching infections such as TB. Due to fantastic support, the money for the beds has been raised and it is now my job to try and raise the funds for the logistical side of things. We will need to hire a van and driver to collect and deliver the beds as well as paying for the support of Claire's contacts within the charity as delivering the beds will have to be done very carefully so as not to alert the rest of the village to the women's condition. Any help towards this cause would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.This is where she sleeps.
