ARV Courier

Hi PP,

I am HIV+ and has been on medication for several months now.
I would like to ask about available couriers for my medicines and any fees or donations that I could help.

I am afraid of the stigma because I myself is a health provider before and I have failed to protect myself. I have moved on from my dreams of becoming a succesful health provider. I am now more focused on my other talents and knowledge and starting from scratch. However, there is a fear growing everytime I go to get refills that somebody I know will see me, from my current work, a coworker from a hospital, or anyone (a classmate or friend). One time, I saw my older sister once, and I hurriedly went home. I do not know it was her or someone that looks like her.

PLHIV Story: "Possie of Cebu"

Hello po sa lahat! 

It was June 27, 2013 nung nauwi ako sa Pilipinas dahil pina.deport ako from Abu Dhabi. Isang taon na din ang lumipas kung saan naranasan ko ang pinakamahabang lingo, araw, oras, minuto sa buhay ko. Isang taon ang nakalipas na akala ko hindi ko kakayanin ang  
mga pagsubok na dumating sa buhay ko.

I am working bilang OFW sa Abu Dhabi... Nagsumula bilang sekretarya hangang napromote ako bilang Manager sa isang prestihiyosong hotel sa Abu Dhabi at sa mundo. Sa loob ng isang taon na pagtratrabaho ko dun, di ko inaasanag lubos biyaya ang natanggap ko galing sa Diyos. May isa akong magandang tirahan sa Abu Dhabi, may malaking sahod,  may magandang hanap buhay, na rin ako sa mga bansang gusto kong mapuntahan at nagsimula ng mag.invest dito sa Pilipinas. In fact, nanalo pa ako bilang Employee of the Year at ikalawang pinakamagaling na HR practitioner sa Gitnang Silangan at natatanging Pilipino na numinado. Lubos biyaya ang natangap ko at  wala na akong mahihiling pa sa Diyos, lahat ng pangarap ko natupad ko na at hoping na rin sana ako sa pagpursigi ng application ko sa Canada bilang isang immigrant at bilang isang Nurse.

The Love Fund: May 2014 Report

The Project Red Ribbon Care Management Program (TRR) was able to help 34 persons with HIV (PLHIV) with medical assistance amounting to more than P500,000 (almost $12,000) in May 2014 alone in RITM-ARG.  The advocacy group since it's inception in September 2011, has now reached almost 5 million pesos (around $116,000) worth of medical assistance to our indigent PLHIV through The Love Fund and it's partnership with the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO). 

The Love Fund is the heart and soul of TRR. It is through the donations of our generous brothers and sisters that we are able to help those who are in need. The Love Fund provides assistance by providing emergency lab tests and medicines, transportation to indigent to and from the hospital, courier of ARV's to provinces, vaccinations, etc.

The table below shows the clients who have been assisted in RITM-ARG alone. This list doesn't include those that TRR has helped last month from PGH, San Lazaro Hospital, The Medical City, St, Lukes Hospital, Makati Medical Center and provincial hospitals in the country, nor those clients who had been personally assisted by our Care Manager Gerald who assisted PLHIV through the donations of our PLHIV peers from the TRR group.

Note: The Project Red Ribbon always post the beneficiaries and the amount that has been provided to their clients for transparency purposes. We collate all reports and post them here in the website. 

Our volunteers don't get anything from the donations in The Love Fund. Volunteers don't have allowances. Their food and transportation come from their own pocket and all donations of The Love Fund go directly to all the indigent clients that TRR assist.

Thank you to all our donors! You are saving lives in the Philippines!

We can do more if people reading the blog will donate. Help us help others by donating to The Love Fund. Click the link below:
