LOVE : Fund Raising Gala
This is a special fund raising event benefitting Action for AIDS (AFA) Singapore. Proceeds from this event will be used to fund educational, care and welfare programmes. The event will mobilise business and community support to stop the spread of HIV infection and AIDS and to lessen the impact of the infection in Singapore.
For 25 years AFA has been at the forefront of AIDS prevention and care. Our support and care programmes have benefitted thousands of people through education, testing and treatment. Our long standing prevention efforts are estimated to have prevented thousands of HIV infections in Singapore.
Many of our supporters and volunteers were also honoured that night. Life awards were given to individuals who have dedicated their valuable talents and efforts to AFA for more than 10 years, and Volunteer and Community Partners awards were given to organisations, business owners and individuals who gave of their time and, in many cases, of themselves to fight HIV alongside us. They also share our commitment to prevention and education amongst vulnerable community groups, advocacy against HIV/AIDS discrimination and the promotion of positive attitudes amongst the younger generation.
Endless love raised a phenomenal $140,371.10. These generous contributions will help us provide services and care for persons living with HIV/AIDS as well as emotional and financial support to their family members. Defeating HIV will require a comprehensive response, and effective programmes can now be scaled up to serve and treat more people and prevent new infections.
Your donations put us a step ahead in achieving our vision of “zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths”.
