  2. 2. Endless List I can list up to 20 people who have had a tremendous impact in my life vis-à-vis the Fight Against HIV/AIDS. The following 5 are top of the list. I am glad God brought them into my life:
  3. 3. #5 Tom Mkhize I knew Tom long before we actually met face-toface; when we finally did there was the most natural “brotherhood” bond CCE-CC Master Trainer He reflects his master trainer in skill and dexterity I refer to Tom as my Zulu warrior brother in the fight against HIV/AIDS He is Dependable
  4. 4. #4 Ann Bailey Professor, University of Zambia, (University Teaching Hospital), later Clergy, Anglican Church Her statement made the difference when she said, “God is in our suffering.” The year was 1990/91 in a meeting of HIV/AIDS facilitators in Lusaka. That changed my perspective on HIV/AIDS
  5. 5. #3 April Foster Team Coordinator, Africa Region, HIV/AIDS Team for many years; A foot soldier in the fight against HIV/AIDS Highly organized and systematic Thoughtful, prayerful, forever patient From her I learned the value of selfless giving in this fight
  6. 6. #2 Ian Douglas Campbell Medical doctor, Chikankata Hospital A friend; Gave me a chance to try Thrust me into the deep end of community counseling and I learnt to swim Always trusting in team capacity First impression of what it means to transfer concepts of care and hope Never afraid to try others
  7. 7. #1 Thebisa Chaava My mentor in community counseling and CCE-CC A faithful friend and partner in life Mother of all my children The most devoted CCE-CC advocate the world has ever known Master Trainer and Innovative Leader in this field
