The group is hosting Vihas De Vida on Saturday, October 25, 4 to 8 p.m., and on Sunday, October 26,  10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the gazebo of the Ajijic plaza. The HIV support group from Guadalajara will include 13 young adults who will help educate young people about the disease with a focus on prevention.

Ajijic Cares will sponsor more events during the worldwide recognition of World Aids Day on November 30 and December 1, when people around the world unite in the fight against HIV, support those living with HIV/AIDS, and commemorate those who have died from the disease.
