Film focuses attention on HIV epidemic

By From page A4 | October 09, 2012

A free screening of “Yesterday” (2004), a movie set in South Africa, is set for 7 p.m. Sunday at International House, Davis. The movie describes the plight of a young mother named Yesterday who learns she is HIV-positive and is determined to stay alive until her young daughter is old enough to go to school.

It will be followed by a discussion about AIDS led by researcher Koen Van Rompay, a member of the I-House board and the founder of Sahaya International, which helps women and children in India and Africa suffering from AIDS.

Many Davis residents have adopted AIDS orphans through Sahaya International, which is having an AIDS walk on Oct. 21 in Davis. For more information, email Van Rompay at [email protected].
