“I work in a church, and we have sex workers”

This morning in the Global Village of the 2012 International AIDS Conference, a gentleman from Malawi approached our desk with some trepidation.

“Is there a contact list where I can sign up?” he asked.

A volunteer said, “I don’t think so, but if you’ll leave your information, I’ll make sure that you get on a list. Also,  you can take some of our material home.”

He answered, “I can’t put all those things in my suitcase. I have to watch the weight!”

Malawi

Out of a population of 15.4 million, almost one million people in Malawi are living with HIV. AIDS is the leading cause of death amongst adults in Malawi, and is a major factor in the country’s low life expectancy of just 54.2 years.

Sex Workers in Church

Of course. Do you doubt that there may be sex workers in your church, too?
