Raising Awareness about HIV/Aids in Lagos! Snapshots of Chidinma, Sound Sultan & JJC at the Lagos Aids Walk & Benefit Concert

Published

 on

On Saturday 21st April 2012, the 10 Km HIV/Aids awareness walk organised by Biire Child and Maternal Health Foundation in collaboration with the Lagos State Agency for the Control of Aids (LSACA) and other stake holders took place.

Lagos residents came out in their hundreds to help support the cause. They walked from Ebute Meta End of the Third Mainland Bridge to Carter/Adeniji Adele Bridge where a large red ribbon was formed. The ribbon signified remembrance, care and compassion for those living with the virus and those who had lost their lives to it. Then they headed to Freedom Park where a benefit concert was held. Although some of the dignitaries scheduled to attend didn’t show up, some of Nigeria’s entertainers including Chidinma, Sound Sultan and JJC came out to support the cause.

Here are some snapshots from the event.

    Who needs the politicans there anyway. The ordinary people that matters came out en mass to support people living with HIV. Tinubu does not care now instead he will be collecting taxes, Fashola care small because he sent representative in person of special adviser on health to represent him. Pls call Mandela next year and he will come. Law pls carry go we will walk from lagos to river niger dam.

    Firts time I am participating in any HIV event, I am HIV positive and I have been living with the virus for over 10 years. I felt very impressed and also like someone cares. People do not always want to part take in any HIV activity or event. Pls make this man a leader because he knows the peoples need. Kudos to lag aids walk

    How many of the participants know their HIV status? It is not enough to ‘Mouth it’ we need to actually ‘Act it’

    Love this! Don’t know how come I’m just finding it on BN. I’ll used the opportunity to recommend a clinic in Abuja for those who might need it.
