HIV and AIDS have impacted our Indigenous Community in a very disproportionate rate. Our community is suffering and dying alone, without support and facing stigma and discrimination the whole way. I started working at 2-Spirits to try and be a positive impact to this. This year my Brother went into the spirit world and was living with HIV. Throughout his last years of life he needed more financial support. I offer these two bursaries in his honour, in hopes to momentarily release some financial burden one of our community members are currently facing because of this illness.
This is Bursary is eligible to any 2-Spirit (First Nations, Metis or Inuit) Community Member from Ontario, living with HIV of any age.
