"La grippe coloniale", a comic written by Appollo

The good news was announced just a few hours ago: the jury behind the prestigious Jacques Lob prize, which is awarded each year to a comic writer for their work, has chosen our very own Appollo! AAD warmly congratulates Appollo and we are extremely proud to count such a talented comic writer, especially one who is using his talent in the service of development, among our partners.

 

Indeed, in March 2012, Appollo accepted to take part in the AAD program Operation: Prevention’. In collaboration with the Congolese artist Séraphin Kajibwami, he will create the second volume of Les Diamants de Kamituga, which will be distributed throughout the Democratic Republic of Congo to promote HIV awareness and the importance of voluntary AIDS screening.
