Miss Universe 2016 was the most celebrated Philippine event so far. But what makes it extra significant is its advocacy on raising HIV and AIDS awareness and education through the National Charity Gift Auction. And Positive Action Foundation Philippines, Inc. (PAFPI) was fortunate to be named as the auction’s beneficiary that was held last January 23, 2017 at Forbes Ballroom, Conrad Hotel in Pasay City. The event was attended by the contestants from Miss Universe 2016, the queen herself, MU 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, notable people in the Miss Universe pageant, people in government and embassies, and various celebrities.
Positive Action Foundation Philippines, Inc. (PAFPI) receives the support of MAC AIDS Fund (MAF) for seven years in a row. The funding cycle that runs from January to December 2017 will cover the needs of PAFPI’s Manila and Davao projects for people living with HIV (PLHIVs) and their affected families.
