The Zip-Zap Circus: A celebration of being normal

February 2006

In partnership with the One to One Children's Fund and thanks to corporate funding from Aurum and Aquatan, Kidzpositive presented a performance of the Zip-Zap Circus School at the Oliver Tambo Hall in Khayelitsha on December 1st, World AIDS Day. This entertainment for all the HIVpositive children in the Western Cape Province was a celebration of health and well being, thanks to antiretroviral therapy. Buses transported children from as far away as Worcester and Paarl, and the hall was packed with more than 2 500 children and their caregivers. Pick & Pay generously donated the contents of more than 2500 party packs and volunteers from organizations such as the Rotary Club of Claremont, Bnai Brith and Old Mutual Health Care helped to pack. The performance was a roaring success, to judge by the noise and the crowd's responses and was also a highlight for participants at the PATA (Treatment Team) Conference. In the picture to the right, members of the Zip-Zap troupe, which includes children from Khayelitsha who are on anti-retroviral therapy, can be seen looking on as the audience applauds their show in the Oliver Tambo Hall.
