Guelph GoGo Grandmothers (4Gs)


The Stephen Lewis Foundation’s grassroots partners are critical actors in the response to the COVID-19 response in sub-Saharan Africa. We have received many questions from our supporters asking how our partners are doing and looking for updates on their work and the communities they serve. In the upcoming series of Voices, we will share the stories of their work and how community-based organizations are best placed to protect and support the most vulnerable populations.

. . . Our partners are working tirelessly to ensure that communities affected by HIV and AIDS continue to have the support they need. As an act of solidarity in this time of global vulnerability, please consider donating to the SLF COVID-19 Appeal.
