Rumbi’s Story

“When I grew up in Zimbabwe I lived in a place where weekends were reserved for funerals, funerals for people dying of HIV/AIDS.”

At the rally last Friday, a girl from Harvard College named Rumbi gave a passionate testimony about her experience watching the people around her suffer and die from HIV/AIDS. There is hope for the millions suffering from HIV/AIDS. We have the medications. We have the knowledge. But we lack the funding.

As Rumbi cried out at the end, “We are privileged to be at an institution that is in the global eye, that has the global ear. What do we do? We stand up and fight, Harvard. WE STAND UP AND FIGHT.”
