|Emotional support to confront doubts and fears|
This not-for-profit organization is backed up by the experience of 23 years of intensive work in the Raval district of Barcelona, and another 8 years in the city of Managua (Nicaragua).
For ACASC, dignity has no frontiers, and thanks to the help of citizens and other social organizations, the care of, and protection of the rights of persons with HIV-Aids and their families, is now a reality.
Workshops, hospital visits, legal advice, and the always-necessary emotional support for its users, as well as their immediate surroundings, are only a few of the activities of this institution, which in 2006 was declared a 'Public Interest Entity'.
In Nicaragua, thanks to the collaboration of local counterparts, ACASC has succeeded in strengthening community groups, and a greater awareness of the virus, especially in rural areas of the country, where people suffering from HIV-Aids face serious problems of discrimination and isolation.
The efforts of the people who work in this non-government organization are not aimed solely toward aid, but also toward the prevention of an illness which has caused the deaths of 30 million people, including 10,000 in Catalonia.
