Thank You!

For the past week, we have been assisting 2 babies as well as their parents with HIV.  One morning, I  received a picture from an HIV doctor:


So how can you not ignore this call?

Immediately, I called for help. I texted a friend priest who we have assisted before. We also asked The Project Red Robbin members to help out. The result was outstanding. Below is a picture of what was delivered by the priest: 4 large cans of formula milk and 10 packs of diapers. We also received cash donations from our members thru The Love Fund.


When we care, we act fast. When we know it is immediate, the action should also be immediate. Thank you to all our friends and donors!

Email 527: Anxious with the HIV Result

Hi pozzie!

Can you enlighten me on this one?

Nagpatest kasi ako sa RITM 6 weeks after exposure (oral sex exposure lang) and it was non-reactive. Pero ngayon. after 4 months. napansin ko biglang pumapayat ata ako. I do not know if this is stress-induced (lack of sleep,stress) or sa maling test results. I am panicking right now...again.

Then the last one, im the top and with condom.

The TRR Dance Group: Empowering the PLHIV Community

The Project Red Ribbon Care Management Program (TRR) empowers its members to become productive members of society. Through it's empowerment programs, TRR immerse our fellow PLHIV in the mainstream society, helping people to be educated about HIV by understanding what our brothers and sisters are capable of doing, despite having HIV.

Last April 1, 2014, the TRR Dance Group presented a dance number in front of a crowd during the dance diva and TRR supporter, Miss Regine Tolentino's show in Eastwood Mall in Quezon City. The hip hop dance that the group presented was part of the skill training learned during TRR's weekly Dance Class, a part of TRR's Health and Fitness Program for PLHIV. Prior to the dance, the President of TRR first introduced the advocacy group, it's mission and vision, plus all the other monthly programs of TRR.

PLHIV Story: Not Losing Hope


Hi. Sa mga makakabasa ng aking kwento, sana po ay maging inspirasyon eto para sa inyo.

I came from the Southern part of the Philippines and has been living here in Manila for almost 5 years.

My story has started when I got exposed to the real world of being part of the 3rd sex. I never had a sexual encounters back in province and not even a kiss. I have had several sexual partners nung nandito na ako and mostly one-night-stand sa dami nila di ko na maala lahat ng names nung naging ka affair ko, hanggang sa medyo nagsawa na ako sa paulit-ulit na gawain. I used to serve the Lord back in College but I decided to stop muna  
kasi parang di pako handa na mag serve dahil sa mga nagawa ko. I asked the Lord na sana mahanap ko na ang para sa akin habang ako ay nag balik loob sa kanya, nag serve ako sa isa mga sa simbahan dito sa Manila bilang isang Choir Member at nag decide na rin ako na lumipat ng trabaho hanggat nakilala ko ang isang tao na nagpapatibok sa aking puso. Ka officemate ko sya at hindi nagkakayo ang edad namin. Naging close kami sa isat-isa at  
hanggat sa pinakilala nya ako sa mga childhood friends nya at hanggat sa ini-invite nya na ako sa bahay nila but as coworker kasi he just had this courage to disclose to his parents of his real sexual orientation mid of 2013. We have had several sexual intercourses protected/unprotected. Before kami gumawa ng unprotected sex ay usap usap muna kami of our medical condition and I guranteed him na I'm negative kasi hindi naman ako  
masyadong  involved sa sex na may penetration. Oo marami ako ka one night stand pero those were mostly oral at hindi naman ako nag papa-bott. We both agreed na mag pa test last Nov 2014 sa isa sa mga clinic sa QC na gov't owned. It never came into my mind na maging possie ako, while we were on our way to the testing center I was so confident and never did my heart beat fast of the outcome kasi none of the symptoms ng sakit na'to ay never ko naman naramdaman in fact tumataba nga ako from being skinny.

Email 523: On Oral Sex

Hello pozziepinoy. 

Im Don, so its been almost 4 months since I had sex with a man I met online. We just did oral and didn't let ourselves be exposed in each other's cum. So just this week (after 4 months of doing that), I discovered a white penile discharge. I immediately went to a doctor and they diagnosed me with a UTI. I immediately felt better after 24 hours of medication (no penile discharge). Its my second day of medication  
today and I am almost perfectly fine. Do you think that I have HIV? I saw a lot of articles in the net saying that the presence of HIV can induce UTI. Internet articles also stated that  
it is rare for young men to have UTI. I am so paranoid now. I don't want to have HIV. Thanks for the reply.

Don
