There are a couple of world events taking place at the moment. In England it is the ICC World Twenty20 and here in South Africa the British Lions are on tour. Yesterday was probably the greatest day in SA sport as it was the opening of the FIFA Confederations Cup.
The unfortunate part was that our team could not open with a win. We hope the team can do much better in their next game. The Proteas in England are doing well though. They are still unbeaten and have qualified for the semi-finals.
I also got a chance to watch a DVD called Alicia in Africa. Its a documentary of the work Alicia Keys is doing in Africa. We are so lucky to have people like her committed to doing great things for the people in this continent. The touching story for was about this young 16 year old boy in Kenya who was born HIV Positive. He only started taking ARV when he was about 13 years old, basically he never stood a chance
. There is still a shortage of these drugs in Africa.
We hope more people like Alicia Keys can get involved in the fight against HIV.
