Fqsida and the Farha Foundation join forces against HIV/AIDS
May 18, 2017
We announced it last April 4th: the Fondation québécoise du sida and the Fondation Farha merged on the 1st of April under the banner of the Fondation québécoise du sida to better join forces against HIV/AIDS!
“This is excellent news for all the men and women fighting against HIV/AIDS in Quebec!” said Sylvain Laflamme, chairman of the board of Fqsida. “This merger comes at the right time and enables us to promote our joint vision: Together let’s build a world without AIDS or HIV”.
The Farha Foundation spearheads the fight against HIV/AIDS. Over the past 25 years, it has distributed close to 10 million dollars to some 76 organizations in Quebec that provide care and services to people living with HIV/AIDS, along with prevention and education programmes.
We are proud of this alliance and happy to renew, in this way, our commitment to the communities of Quebec. The combined experience of our two foundations will contribute to an even better response to the many issues in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
