This disease started as an isolated case; now it is a worldwide phenomenon. Love and education can help us to decrease the spread of this disease. This book highlights the panic people in South Africa went through. Their calls for help received no answers. I was encouraged to get involved when I read about Dr. Hlengwa Smangaliso in the community of Hlabisa, South Africa, who stood up and did all he could to help the people in his community. He, along with others, fought for the government to recognize the cause of the disease, allowing antiretroviral medications to be approved for those who were HIV-positive and educating the population about HIV/AIDS. I encourage you to join The Caravan of Love; whatever you can do to fight against the spread of this disease, join in.
