I'm looking forward to it. Mr. Lewis has gone on to work for the UN and has served the world well with his first hand accounts of the needs of Africa.
On Dec 31st, Stephen Lewisâ€™s tenure as UN Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa comes to an end. For five and a half years, heâ€™s criss-crossed Africa and the world at breakneck speed. His crammed schedule has included endless speeches and high level meetings with Presidents, UN officials and anyone who will listen to his impassioned plea for Africa. Possessing an intricate knowledge of the continent, he's made countless visits to grassroots projects: they give him great hope but also disturb him most deeply because the spectre of death is still everywhere. Each death haunts him. He rarely sleeps on these epic journeys â€“ in fact it's not clear when he gets any rest at all.Â Â via.
8:00 pm tonight, at TCU Place, Saskatoon.
