16 DEC, 2015. The 20th anniversary celebration of the AAVE project in Goiânia, Brazil, which was co-founded by Sr Margaret Hosty SSL, took place on the afternoon November 20 on the grounds of the AAVE centre. It was founded in response to the pleas of people living with HIV/AIDS in Goiânia and the surrounding areas in mid-western Brazil, and has supported those living with the virus and their families in a variety of ways ever since.
Many supporters of AAVE were invited to the celebration, including church representatives and Bishops, HIV/AIDS NGOs, city and state representatives in the area of HIV/AIDS, and representatives from the California region of the Sisters of St Louis. It was a beautiful celebration of prayer and song, and a look back at the last 20 years of the AAVE centre.
