We are grateful for the work being done by Product (RED) to fight what we consider the biggest threat to our existence on this continent. We trust that this initiative, similar to our 46664 campaign, will inspire people around the world to help us fight the HIV/Aids disease. It is not merely a disease, but an assault on human dignity.

We cannot win this fight on our own and we join Bono in calling for your assistance.
