Read what influential figures in the fight against HIV/AIDS in the developing world have to say about the work of AIDS Ark.
In 2002, when no ARVs were available to my Basotho people, AIDS Ark’s support allowed me to start our country’s first ARV treatment programme.
Many who would have died are today, not only alive, but also productive, happy and eager to help those who continue to suffer.
AIDS Ark has truly been a pioneer of ARV treatment in the Kingdom of Lesotho, and for this, I and my people express our overwhelming gratitude.
I am convinced that as your intervention grows in strength, it will prove pivotal to many thousands of people’s lives.
As someone who owes my life to privileged access, I am deeply moved by your caring initiative and the painstaking steps you have so far taken to put it into practical effect.
Without doubt, access to ARVs funded by AIDS Ark kept these patients alive from 2002 to 2006 when we were finally able to secure places for them on new government-funded ARV programmes.
The support from AIDS Ark unquestionably spearheaded the formation of the new programmes.
AIDS Ark is doing God's work for those of our people suffering from HIV/AIDS.
They identify opportunities where extreme need is supported by exemplary medical care. They fund this need and then work to leverage much greater assistance from much larger NGOs.
