The Bizarre Bazaar is back - at the Roberts Creek Hall on Saturday, November 16th from 10 – 2 pm
Hosted by the Sunshine Coast Grandmothers and Grandothers this yearly event is back by popular demand!
The Stephen Lewis Foundation ( www.stephenlewisfoundation.org ) raises money and awareness for the people in Sub-Saharan Africa who are most effected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. We hear so little about the disease these days that we may think the worst is over. Not so, in Africa poverty makes it hard for those affected to access the medicines they need, decent food to build up their immune systems, and the courage to hold their head up high against the stigma that is associated with the disease.
The Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign ( www.grandmohterscampaign.org ) raises awareness and funds for the grandmothers who are nurturing a generation of children orphaned by the AIDS pandemic. A full 90% of funds raised goes into the hands of grassroots organizations run by and for African Grandmothers supporting them with life enhancing and effective programmes. This means they can pay for school fees and uniforms, grow and harvest crops for their families and for sale at market, create local savings and loan groups, learn and teach others about HIV & AIDS prevention and treatment and provide the emotional support that rebuilds resilience.
We of the Sunshine Coast Grandmothers who are raising money for the SLF would like to thank you in advance for joining in the fun and shopping at our Bizarre Bazaar on Saturday, November 16th, from 10 until 2. It means the world to the African Grannies and their grassroots groups who are determined to turn the tide of AIDS.
