Hi! My name is Leena, and I'm currently interning for an organisation called Until There's A Cure. Before this internship, I knew HIV/AIDS was an impactful epidemic, but I didn't know just how far it reached and how much damage it could cause. Today, at least 35 million people are currently living with the disease. It's not only destructive to one's health, it touches every aspect of their life-- from social to professional.
Until There's A Cure has the goal of eradicating HIV/AIDS through awareness, education, and raising funds for treatment. It was started in 1993 by two mothers in California, and has grown into a leader in fighting the HIV/AIDS battle. If you're able, I would really appreciate any donation you can manage. Right now, UTAC is participating in Giving Tuesday, who will be matching every donation! The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly disrupted the organisation's usual fundraising pathways, and right now, any amount helps.
