Barcelona is joining forces with the anti-AIDS foundation: Fundació Lluita contra la Sida. Adopting the slogan “If you’re not infected, you’re not affected“, the foundation and City Council are launching an awareness and money-raising campaign.
Highlights include a Gala against AIDS on 1 December. This is the first time one of the most important charity events in the country is being held. Featuring many famous Spanish and international figures, it will aim to collect money to fund research and help projects for AIDS sufferers, activities the foundation has been carrying out for over fifteen years.
The gala merely signals the start to the campaign, under which the City Council will be expressing its support for taking on the illness and raising awareness of it among city residents and publicising the foundation’s solidarity work.
All money received from donations, bracelet sales and attending the gala dinner will go to Fundació Lluita contra la Sida research projects.
