Housemates Talk About AIDS

Inspired by today’s Task and this week’s ONE Campaign theme, the Chasers took to talking about the AIDS pandemic and how it affects not just Africa but the world as a whole.

They all shared stories of how AIDS has affected them in their communities and the experiences they have come to know surrounding poverty and the spread of AIDS. Beverly told them about how the people in her country are nonchalant about AIDS.

Dillish said she was fortunate because she works with AIDS orphans in her country and she often sees and hears about how ignorant and irresponsible the young boys and girls are. “They sometimes even don’t know how they get infected and that is a huge problem,” the Namibian beauty said. She also expressed how dangerous the adverts were that told people to get test kits from pharmacies at any time of the day.

Dillish said that sex should be a pleasurable thing where both partners feel comfortable discussing and using condoms. “People should not feel that using a condom is a duty, they should feel that it’s a necessity to get the job done,” she explained. It was really pleasant to hear that all our Chasers have in-depth knowledge about AIDS and how to conduct yourself as a person in order to be safe. Kudos to the Chasers.
