As part of our one-year joint program “Love with Care School Project” with Khemara Cambodia, we have introduced our signature Mask Design Contest to Peam Chileang and Tboung Khmum province since 2018. During the Cambodian New Year, 512 students and public participants were invited by Khemara Cambodia to learn more about HIV/AIDS and the challenges PLHIV faced through creating masks. In addition, various competitions and games were organized in a playful way to teach their students about the importance of HIV prevention and against discrimination of HIV cases in the society.
Under the threat of COVID-19, The 7th Asia Pacific Conference on AIDS and Co-infections will go virtual again on 16-18 June this year, to ensure all participants can join the conference under a safe environment condition. The conference will feature regional experts to provide community and health care perspectives, as well as national plans/ programs for implementation for strategies to eliminate stigma and discrimination. We are honored to be one of their supporting organizations for the seventh consecutive year. And our professional team will also attend the presentation of latest researches on HIV/AIDS presented by scholars at the conference.
The fifth wave of COVID-19 pandemic has brought great challenges to all of us. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Hongkong Land HOME FUND for a funding support of food and anti-pandemic supplies, supermarket coupon and COVID antigen test-kits to our service users. 150 people living with HIV (PLHIV) families with aging PLHIV or financial difficulties have been benefited from this Programme.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust and Hongkong Land who have donated COVID antigen rapid test kits through the Hong Kong Council of Social Service to protect the health of our staff and we can continue to provide services for people living with HIV (PLHIV) during the 5th wave of COVID epidemic. Because of the low immunity of PLHIV and most of older PLHIV also have other chronic disease, anti-epidemic items such as masks, COVID-19 antigen rapid test kits, disinfection supplies and food support are especially important for them. Most of our members are grassroots, living alone or have poor physical conditions with difficult financial situation, SAC is actively seeking resources to help them face this pandemic wave. We also hope kind-hearted person can donate anti-epidemic materials to us as to support PLHIV in-need.
The fifth wave of COVID-19 pandemic is severe in Hong Kong. Thank you to Koo Tin Lok Charitable Foundation who has donated COVID antigen rapid test kits to us, so we can immediately provide support to people living with HIV (PLHIV) in-need. Because of the low immunity of PLHIV, older PLHIV and low income PLHIV families are most in need of anti-epidemic items such as masks, COVID-19 antigen rapid test kits, disinfection supplies and food support during the pandemic. SAC is actively seeking resources to help them face this pandemic wave. We also hope kind-hearted person can donate anti-epidemic materials to us as to support PLHIV.
