BBC Radio 4 Appeal
Thank you to Starfish patron, Dame Janet Suzman for broadcasting our work and the Starfish Wellness Wagon on BBC Radio 4. She shared the story of a young girl in Natal who had the rotten luck to be born with HIV, and how her life has been turned round by Starfish. We have had a great response to the Appeal so far and you can listen here to why Dame Janet Suzman supports Starfish.
