Lok Yee, Fundraising Ambassador

I used to be a monthly donor and now I’m trying to support AIDS Concern as a Fundraising Ambassador. I found being a Fundraising Ambassador very meaningful. In addition to raising funds for our programs. I’m also able to educate the public with information about HIV/AIDS and hopefully change any negative attitudes they might have. After all, while encouraging people to support us with donations, we also want to educate them about HIV/AIDS and help to reduce the stigma attached to PLHIV. I once met a PLHIV and also a person who had a family member living with HIV while I was raising funds on the streets. From their stories I learnt more about the needs, difficulties and pressures of PLHIVs and that furthered my commitment to promoting rights and welfare of vulnerable communities.
