A Hove charity has been awarded £480,812 to tackle HIV and Aids in Haiti.

The grant will help fund a three-year project led by the International HIV/Aids Alliance, based on Davigdor Road in Hove, with their Haitian partner Promoteurs Objectif Zerosida (POZ).

The project in Haiti aims to help secure the livelihoods of people with HIV and Aids in the city of Cap Haitien.

Ruth Ayarza from the International HIV/Aids Alliance’s Latin America and Caribbean team said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have been awarded this important Big Lottery Fund grant to improve the quality of people living with HIV and that of their families.

“The three-year project, which we are implementing with our Haitian partner Promoteurs Objectif Zerosida (POZ) who have continued with their work supporting people with HIV.”

The project will reach more than 85,000 people who will receive training in producing crafts and household items for tourist and local markets, and business skills.
