Every 1st December since 1988 is marked as World AIDS day, an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, showing their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died.

We are extremely happy to share the latest news from the General Assembly of the Coordinating Commitee for International Voluntary Service: SCI representative, Ingrid Danckaerts will succeed Matina Deligianni from SJ France as the new president of the Coordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service (CCIVS).

Last weekend the members of the PATH project and the Building Bridges campaign teamed up in Budapest for a coordination meeting. Both PATH and Building Bridges focus on refugee related topics, PATH on learning lessons from the forced migration in the past and Building Bridges on cooperation, knowledge sharing and raising awareness about refugee issues. The meeting was successful and gave direction to future work. Main areas of work were identified and tasks distributed to the team members.
