Hedac Donates Antiretroviral Treatment For 3000 People, Highlighting New Way To Fundraise.
Toronto - HEDAC is proud to announce it has signed an agency agreement with AID FOR AIDS International, which secures large-scale donations of HIV medication to benefit people living with HIV and AIDS in developing countries.
Stephen C. Mortfield, director of HEDAC [Help to Eliminate Disease and Addiction Canada]; Raymond Adelson, the strategic liaison between HEDAC and leading international charities; and Shy Kurtz, spokesperson and chief fundraising consultant for HEDAC, head this partnership. These philanthropists have joined forces, facilitating the donation of antiretroviral treatments for 3000 people over one year, plus three million doses of much needed antibiotics.
These medicines will be directed to AID FOR AIDS International’s office in the Dominican Republic and will be used to provide treatment to those affected by the earthquake in Haiti. The buck doesn’t stop there. Medicines will also be distributed across the globe to other areas without access to life-saving HIV treatment. By the end of March 2010, expect to see these antiretroviral meds in the hands of those who desperately need them.
From over 83,000 registered Canadian charities, this donation serves to highlight HEDAC’s rank as the number 2 charity in Canada, in terms of how much of one’s donation actually goes to the cause. HEDAC is striving to spearhead this new philanthropy with a proprietary method combining math, legal, and economic principles, creating a never before used and efficient model to fundraise. By aligning interests of donors and charities, and merging for-profit with not-for-profit economies, HEDAC stimulates a new-age economy created for the purpose of donation rather than consumption.
AID FOR AIDS International, lead by its executive director Jesus Aguais, named a “Medical Marvel” by CNN, is an organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for people living with HIV/AIDS in developing countries. HEDAC looks forward to a long and beneficial collaboration with AID FOR AIDS, and plans to continue extending its efforts in other life-saving partnerships.
