AID FOR AIDS’ weeklong Medicine Drive is starting to shift into high gear, with the arrival of nine boxes of recycled antiretroviral medication. The medications are already being tested, prior to shipment to needy recipients throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.

“We’re off to a promising start,” noted Liliana Velasquez, AFAI’s marketing and recycling manager. “Clearly, our message is being heard by individuals and AIDS organizations across the country. But the real test won’t come this week…it’ll come in the weeks and months ahead when we see the fruits of an ongoing awareness campaign. ”

Just a quick reminder to donors:  Before sending medications to our New York office, please double- check to make sure all the medicine in the shipment is unexpired.
On behalf of our staff and our clients in the developing world, we thank all who have responded to the donation drive, and hope that this strong initial response signals a continuing relationship between U.S. donors and AID FOR AIDS International.
Those who wish to obtain more information may do so by contacting Liliana Velasquez at 212-337-8043 or via email at
