Minister Kendal Richardson
"WELCOME TO THE HOME OF THE GRAPEVINE HIV/AIDS FOUNDATION, INC.OUR MISSION IS TO EDUCATE YOUTH, PARENTS, AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS CONCERNING HIV/AIDS THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT.
"HIV/AIDS is the end result, we need to address the issues that help cause one to become infected by the virus. Living with the virus and disease personally myself, for 19 years, I've seen the disease destroy lives, families, dreams, destinies and purposes. I cannot sit back and allow a disease to threaten the survival of our nation, especially since now the youth from 13-24 are becoming infected at an alarming rate.
I have a passion to speak into the lives of humanity, though we may disagree on methods or other issues or may simply not realize how many of us have similar interests. Some people need to be energized or re-energized and to know that they are not alone. We need to refocus energy, provide creative ways for solving some the problems that have come to light. We as a people of this world need to demonstrate mutual support and I hope you will see, embrace, empathize, help, give and show support with love in who you are by taking responsibility first for yourself and the community.
"Do not fear, Do not be ashamed, Do not stop loving yourself and others, Stand with us on this journey as we root out, pull down, thrown down and destroy stigma and this disease called HIV/AIDS as well as we build and plant love and compassion for one another."
