Due to a strict government currency control in Venezuela, many corporations have lately had trouble accessing the foreign currency they need in order to conduct international business. This includes pharmaceuticals, which obviously includes HIV medication. So the country finds itself in the midst of a terrible shortage, and people have been reaching out to AID FOR AIDS Venezuela and to all other possible sources of medication, including Nelson Vergel, an author, engineer and HIV treatment advocate, asking for help. In order to try to help, Mr. Vergel has used his wide reach through thebody.com to point both people in need and those who might have excess medication in the direction of AID FOR AIDS (AFA). Knowing about our HIV Medicine Recycling Program, and the work we already do in Venezuela, he knows that we may be able to help, but for that we need to receive medication from donors, and…

Last week, the Museo del Barrio in East Harlem held their yearly Gala in New York City. At the Gala, the Museum honored two people who are also very important to AID FOR AIDS (AFA): Maria Eugenia Maury and Dr. William Haseltine. Ms. Maury is President of the Board of Directors of AFA, and Dr. Haseltine is a Member of the Board. They were both awarded the Joseph A. Unanue Trustee Leadership Award by the Museum. We, at AFA, have known for years the quality of the philanthropic work that Ms. Maury and Dr. Haseltine carry out, and it gives us great joy to see their good work recognized by another organization. The fact that this recognition comes for contributions to the arts, a very separate field from our own work in HIV and AIDS, makes it even more admirable. We want to congratulate them both, and also express how…

This Sunday we had the great luck of spending a gorgeous day walking around central park and the Upper West Side of New York City with some fantastic people. AIDS Walk NY is a yearly event organized by GMHC that raises funds and awareness for HIV and for over 40 organizations in the NYC area. The turnout at the event was awesome, and the day was perfect. It was a great opportunity to see supporters and friends, both old and new. AID FOR AIDS was there early in the morning to greet the participants, hand out food, coffee and information and to just kick off a great day. We are so grateful for all the people who were able to participate in the event, both by joining us for the walk and by donating to make our fundraising a success.

After its launch at the end of 2013, our campaign “Where does your medicine end up?” is gaining momentum and continues to make awareness of our HIV Medicine Recycling Program to more people around the world. This month, the campaign was published in the journals Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine, two of the most respected publications in the scientific and medical world. This is a great achievement for the organization and for our HIV Medicine Recycling Program, since it seeks to be more known for health professionals, including doctors. Both Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine are magazines aimed at the medical and scientific communities around the world. This allows us to promote even more AID FOR AIDS’ work and, specifically, our HIV Medicine Recycling Program, which has in recent years benefited more than 18,000 people in 43 countries. Thanks to this new platform of visibility, we can continue increasing…

This Monday, May 12, our friends at Rabin Martin hosted a happy hour to raise funds in support of the AID FOR AIDS team for the upcoming AIDS Walk NY. The idea and development of the event came from the Rabin Martin team which took the initiative to put together a fantastic evening for all of the attendees. The event was held at Valhalla, in New York City. Needless to say, the event was a huge success and a lot of fun. Corporate donations are key to AID FOR AIDS’ work, but such support is even more special when it comes from the people. We are deeply grateful to the Rabin Martin team for choosing AID FOR AIDS as their charity of choice for AIDS WALK this year, for their generosity and enthusiasm. We also give a special recognition to our friends at Valhalla for opening their doors for this event. To…

It is an endless feeling of happiness what we feel when we see our work has paid off. When we at AID FOR AIDS (AFA) dream of a goal, it does not take long before we see it coming true. That's what happened when we dreamed of opening the first ¿Cuánto Sabes? Prevention and Training Center in the Guna Yala indigenous community, located in Panama. In addition to the happiness we received by achieving this new goal, it is important to highlight that AFA is the first NGO to reach this community. We knocked on the door, and they let us into their amazing community, so we can all together achieve, not only an AIDS free generation, but a responsible, active and supportive world. The opening of the ¿Cuánto Sabes? Center was held on April 26. We had the special participation of Miss Universe 2009, Stefanía Fernández, as well as…

AID FOR AIDS is always up to date when it comes to obey the law. This time, thanks to the Take Back Program of the Department for Drug Control (DEA) on Saturday, April 26 our co-worker Mauricio Iafolla fulfilled the task of properly disposing medicines that had been donated to AID FOR AIDS, but for different reasons, expired and could not be used anymore. The Take Back program aims to provide safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications. AID FOR AIDS discarded eight boxes of medications, one of which included bottles with liquid medicines with an approximate weight of 305 pounds. These drugs are then incinerated following the regulations of the city of New York. The drugs were delivered to the Police Department of New York, Precinct 7, located at 19 1/2 Pitt Street.…

On Monday, May 5th Graciela Dauhajre, Board Member of AID FOR AIDS, opened up her home to host a special sale of this year’s jewelry collection by Clarissa Bronfman. Both Graciela Dauhajre and Clarissa Bronfman decided to donate a portion of the sales from the event to AID FOR AIDS. This exclusive event brought together a small group of New Yorkers who had the opportunity to view Clarissa Bronfman’s exclusive collection. The attendees also left knowing that their money will support the important work that AID FOR AIDS keeps doing in Latin America and the Caribbean. Events such as this, organized by two of our key supporters, fuel our mission and are an inspiration to continue working so that one day, together, we can achieve our goal of an AIDS Free Generation. We want to thank both of these generous women, and all the people who attended the event.
