In April we provided – together with our local partner Bandanh Chaktomok – four times emergency aid: twice to a gay man living with HIV, twice to trans women living with HIV. We are currently looking for an internship for the young man.
Money helps us helping them
Without your donation we aren’t able to help our HIV-positive companions.
Sex workers without HIV suppressors
The trans women we helped, work as sex workers in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. Both were found by an outreach worker from a health centre for LGBT’s. One woman hadn’t taken HIV medication for six months, another woman hadn’t taken it for a year and a half. Both had become ill as a result and both received food and medical aid.
Bad luck for a dancer
We also helped a remarkable man from Phnom Penh: a 45-year-old gay man who has diabetes as well as HIV. As a result, he was no longer able to do his job as a dance teacher at the Royal University of Fine Arts. When his wooden house burned down, he was no longer able to take care of himself.
A young gay from Battambang – also highly educated – was no longer able to work due to illness. In addition to medical assistance, we also paid a month’s rent. For this young man we are now looking for an internship.
