About "Walk the Talk":
Help raise funds for future projects for BDAC (Brunei Darussalam AIDS Council) in educating the population bit by bit
About Brunei Darussalam AIDS Council (BDAC):
Even though the members of BDAC are small, they are one of the most active councils in the county led by and run by youths
BDAC have been working very hard in raising awareness - conducting roadshows and orientation programs throughout the whole year where they visit schools and give awareness talks on HIV/AIDS
They do not work for money- they chase the satisfaction knowing that when they educate one person about hiv/aids and sexual education, that is one life they touch
Their volunteers and members have gone through trainings and visits to countries with bad cases of hiv/aids; if only you could see through my eyes and understand that the impact of hiv/aids is devastating and heartbreaking- you will do all you can to make sure that your friends and loved ones are safe from harms way
There are 8 new hiv/aids cases this year, which is a big jump from slower growths in previous years Read On!...
