Thanks to recent fundraising campaigns, the Untenu Foundation has managed to raise enough money to start a make-up training course for underprivileged LGBTI people with HIV in Battambang, Cambodia. The course will start during the Cambodian rainy season.
Untenu Foundation is involved in Cambodia’s LGBTI community, specially those who are living with HIV. The L in LGBTI is an underexposed group. Lesbian women have the least risk of being infected with HIV in most countries. In Cambodia however, that is different. Yesterday Untenu helped an HIV-positive lesbian woman in the coastal town of Sihanoukville.
With the signatures of Yasethadavuth Davuth (l), vice chairman of Bandanh Chaktomok, and of Ron van Zeeland (r), chairman of Untenu Foundation, the Memorandum of Agreement is a fact. Both parties formalized their relationship for six months and intend to extend this for the rest of 2017 and 2018. Bandanh Chaktomok is now the official partner organization to work with Untenu on emergency aid for LGBTI’s living with HIV under poor conditions in Cambodia.
Recently the Board of Untenu Foundation has appointed the members of the Advisory Board, after the Rules of Procedure was adopted. Yesterday it was confirmed in a joint meeting which also adopted the Annual Report 2015 and Work Plan & Budget 2016. Untenu full steam ahead!
