With help businesswoman Mrs. Mpango, MASYAP visited her home town in Balaka, in order to spread information about HIV, as well as the work that MASYAP does.

After talks by our Support Group Coordinator Marriam, and our Youth and HTC Officer Kaamila, we conducted a quiz to make sure that people had taken in the information we had provided them with. Prizes such as soap, zitenje and sugar were given to participants who answered correctly.

When the quiz was over, HIV testing was conducted. Over 50 people were tested, an extremely successful result, with more wanting to be tested when we left. Another place MASYAP may have to revisit in the future.
