Scotiabank, in partnership with the Ministry of Health, continues efforts to raise EC$50,000 for HIV & AIDS–related work in Grenada.
Teams of volunteers which include local NGOs, will be soliciting donations from the general public throughout Grenada on 28–29 March, 2014. A commemorative red ribbon will be provided to every person who donates as a symbol of our appreciation for the much-needed funds. Authorised volunteers will have in their possession a copy of the authorisation letter stamped and signed by representatives from the Bank of Nova Scotia and the Ministry of Health.
The funds raised from the “Together We Care” campaign will be used to provide treatment and care services for people in Grenada living with HIV; and to educate and raise awareness among the general population on HIV & AIDS–related information and concerns.
The “Together We Care” campaign team encourages you to give generously and support this worthy cause, as we work together to promote better conditions for the infected and affected and to provide valuable information so that safer choices are made and preventative actions are taken.
In Grenada there were 22 new cases of HIV infections recorded for 2013, bringing the total number of recorded infections to 507. There have been 236 deaths as a result of AIDS-related illnesses to date.
Scotiabank is committed to fighting for the HIV & AIDS cause in Grenada and around the world. Locally, the bank is the title sponsor of annual Regional HIV Testing Day which allows the general public to access free HIV counselling and testing services. The “Together We Care” campaign was launched on 28 November 2013 at Scotiabank, St. George’s.
