Sinn Féin Councillor Colly Kelly lighting a candle to remember World Aids Day, which takes place today Thursday December 1st
Councillor Colly Kelly said
“World AIDS Day, is a day in which the world comes out in solidarity and support for those who are living with HIV and AIDS.
“The Red Ribbon is the international symbol of HIV/AIDS awareness and is used to promote awareness and support of a worthy cause and to remind others of the need for their continued support and commitment.
“We must constantly be proactive in supporting prevention awareness programmes for HIV in Derry and across Ireland, these programmes must be sustained and given the proper funding to help reduce the levels of new infections and put in place the support services that are needed for caring for those suffering with HIV.”
