The non-governmental centre which provides HIV/AIDS counselling education and support is currently expanding its response to keep pace with the growing demands for AIDS-related services in Guyana. Care and support are also available for clients who visit the centre.

Meanwhile, Lifeline will be holding a fundraising Bar-b-que at the National Park on Emancipation Day and the public is invited to make donations to assist the organisation to sustain its services.
