Annie Lennox has released a new video that shows a day she spent with the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) in Khayelitsha, South Africa, earlier this year.

The SING Campaign video aims to raise awareness of the work the organization carries out to help stop the spread of AIDS and HIV.

With a population of 700,000 people, the township of Khayelitsha reports 60 rapes every month, and 1 in 3 pregnant women are HIV positive. Two out of three inhabitants have no clean water, no electricity and no access to healthcare.

“It’s a township community, but it’s faced with huge challenges,” says Lennox. "Alcoholism, drugs, gang warfare, domestic violence, rape, abuse – they’ve just got everything under the sun. TAC have been here for years, fighting to lower the prices of treatment, for people to get access to treatment, to break stigma, to strengthen communities.

“Constantly they’re having to go against a brick wall – there’s always a brick wall somewhere.”
