Sir Elton John took to social media on Saturday to announce that his charity, the Elton John AIDS Foundation is launching a $1-million COVID-19 emergency fund.
For almost 30 years, my foundation has prioritized the most vulnerable people to HIV to end the AIDS epidemic, and we’re committed to this during the COVID-19 crisis too.
Distributing medicines, testing and preventive treatment is not a simple as it was a few weeks ago.
We must keep up momentum, or else the results could be disastrous for people living with HIV and other infectious diseases. We’re with you, we’re thinking of you, we will not leave anyone behind.
All of us at the Elton John AIDS Foundation are thinking of our grantees, supporters, members across the HIV community, and their loved ones during this challenging time .
For almost 30 years, the Foundation has prioritized those most vulnerable to HIV/AIDS and those most likely to be left behind, such as the LGBT community, adolescents, drug users, and people in remote places and we are committed to continue our work during the COVID-19 crisis.“
