Moyo Health & Community Services and Oasis Centre Des Femmes has partnered to bring you the Red Scarf Project! We will be selling handmade red scarves—a scaled-up version of the red HIV awareness ribbon—to raise awareness about HIV, fight stigma, and support vital health and community service programming.
While the science of HIV diagnosis, transmission, and treatment has progressed, stigma continues to be one of the greatest barriers people living with HIV face to accessing appropriate and equitable services. Stigma has a negative impact on access to healthcare, housing, and social services.
Our goal is to collect 150 red scarves by World AIDS Day to be sold in malls within Peel Region. To reach this goal, we are asking for these items:
- Red knit/crocheted scarves in any style measuring 6″ x 60″
- Volunteers who love to knit!
- Red yarn
- Cash donations for supplies
