(10/23/2006)

On Friday, December 1, 2006, Bali will join world-wide celebrations to mark World AIDS Day with the unveiling of the Bali quilts of remembrance at Renon Field at 5:00 p.m.

The stated missions of the Indonesian AIDS Quilt Project are to preserve, care for, and use the Indonesian AIDS Memorial Quilt to foster healing, heighten awareness, and inspire action in the struggle against HIV and AIDS.

The Goals of the AIDS Memorial Quilt Project worldwide are:

• Provide a creative means for remembrance and healing.

• Effectively illustrate the enormity of the AIDS epidemic.

• Increase the general public's awareness of HIV and AIDS.

• Assist others with HIV infection-prevention education.

• Raise funds for community-based AIDS service organizations.

The Bali launch will take place at the People's Monument of Struggle in Renon, downtown Denpasar, on Friday, December 1, 2006 at 5 pm.

The highlight of the launch will be unveiling of a number of AIDS Memorial Quilts made by individuals or groups of individuals in remembrance of those who have died as victims of the HIV virus.

The public is invited not only invited to attend this important occasion, but to also make a quilt-panel and send it to the Yakeba Foundation to be included in the Bali memorial.

Bali panels be sewn together to make an AIDS Memorial Quilt which will be unveiled on December 1, 2006. Completed panels should arrive at Yakeba's office no later than November 15, 2006.

For information on panel sizes for the Indonesian AIDS Memorial Quilt and quilt workshops, please contact Saiful at Yayasan Kesehatan Bali's (Yakeba’s) office ++62-(0)361-724699 or call his hand-phone ++62-(0)81558654470.

If you cannot send a panel, Yakeba is also seeking small cash donations for the event or some black cloth donations for backing the quilts.
