EXPAND a Sign donated two Ex-T roll-up banners to the Hillcrest Aids Centre Trust (Hact) that were used at their stand at the recent 26th International Aids Conference at the ICC in Durban.

“The conference was a huge success for our team with our stand being visited by over 15 000 people over the five-day event.

“The banners will now continue to be used at our calendar of annual events,” said Claire Hodgkinson, Hact marketing and fund-raising manager.

Founded in 1990, Hact is a registered non-profit organisation, whose mission is to serve those impacted by HIV/Aids by providing love and hope.

Their current projects include a 24-bed respite unit, which provides palliative care to those with end-stage Aids, an HIV prevention and awareness programme for over 1 000 vulnerable children and orphans and a Granny Support Group programme that provides care and support to over 2 500 grannies.

“Expand a Sign is proud to support Hact that positively contributes towards the fight against HIV/Aids and shares their passion of creating a brighter future for all South Africans,” says Kirsty Fonzari - Expand a Sign marketing manager.
