At a recent Rotary Central meeting,
the local team for the film When No One is Looking made a presentation about
the film, its aims and objectives, and the wider issue of Aids awareness.
Adonza Harrison, an executive
producer of the film, explained to club members that it was important for the
local community in Cayman to improve its awareness and knowledge of Aids.
“HIV is in Cayman. Our response
determines our future,” said Ms Harrison.
Also present at the meeting were
Luigi Moxam and Olivia Scott Ramirez, both of whom appear in the film; Margaret
Michaud, the program coordinator for the Cayman Aids Foundation, and other
Mr. Moxam stressed the importance
of not thinking of Aids as a disease localised to Africa, making the point that
Aids is very much an issue for the Caribbean and the Cayman Islands, as well as
for other parts of the world.
Rotary Central President Wil Pineau
said Rotary is supportive of the efforts and aims of the locally produced film
and encouraged the local community to support When No One is Looking.
“This local film is a very
impressive effort with a valuable message and I am confident that they will
receive support from the wider community,” said Mr. Pineau.
He added that he was particularly
proud that this effort was being led by a group of young Caymanians.
“In the current Rotary year, youth
is one of our primary emphasis and it is very pleasing to see such important
initiatives being led by our country’s future leaders,” he said.
