Caap Aids sensibilisation events, France, November 2008



Three great initiatives by Caap Aids in Les Pieux and Cherbourg (Manche) have helped connect people with the disastrous situation of AIDS around the world and the need to keep up the fight against this disease.



A beautiful show by Danse Plurielle, the dancing school created by Catherine Cadol, dazzles every talk with UNICEF, along with a doctor specializing in AIDS and Eco-Sys Action represented by Valérie Pilard. Valérie delivered a very meaningful talk, talking about the millions of AIDS orphans in sub-Saharan Africa and the Eco-Sys Action program in Kenya for the kids who have lost everything.


Handicrafts from Kenya were sold after each event, raising more funds for the Eco-Sys program.

Stéphane Rousson was scouting Kenya to find suitable locations for his documentary project with his balloon. Among sites of interest were the Great Rift Valley, the cradle of humanity, Lake Magadi in Maasailand and Diani Beach on the Indian Ocean.
