This indeed is a season of awards for RIVCHO for job been done well. During last year’s World AIDS day celebration in the Delta State Capital Asaba, the Civil Society on HIV/AIDS Network (CISHAN) presented Rev Francis Waive Executive Director Riverine Communities Health & Development Organization (RIVCHO) an “Excellence Award recognizing his immerse contribution to the reduction of the HIV prevalence rate in the State to 4.1%”.
In a citation read by the State Coordinator of Cishan Mrs Ibi, She recalled all those civil society personnel that were involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS in the State in the early years and noted Rev Waive’s consistency even when many have given up. She spoke of RIVCHO’s work in difficult and hard to reach terrains, sound management, trained & motivated personnel and measurable success indicators. She also spoke of Rev Waive’s leadership role in Cishan and other areas of development work.
Rev Waive has dedicated the award to all staff and volunteers of RIVCHO without whom he says the award would never have happened. Three hearty cheers to our own ED!
