Every third Sunday of May, people celebrate the International
Aids Candlelight Memorial. This event is meant to remember those
who have lost their battle to Aids, express solidarity vis a vis
people living with HIV, and raise awareness an HIV.
This year, Speakaids, a youth led organization that provides HIV information through social media has decided to bring voices of people affected together. This organization brought voices of people who have lost someone to aids in an online diary. The objective of this diary was to get us closer and to remove the barriers. During one month, the organization called for contributors, collected stories and worked on the conception.
The whole work was published on May 18, the eve of the International Aids Candlelight memorial day 2013.
