Inaugural Red Week raises HIV awareness and $4200 for Fijians

H4H’s Red Week finished with the annual Red Party in conjunction with Bond University’s M.A.D. at Cocktails, where $4200 was raised for the Fiji Network for People Living with HIV (FJN+), a fantastic effort by all. Thank you once again to everyone who came along to these events, and to the International Health Portfolio and Subcommittee, whose time, effort and enthusiasm helped make the week such a success.

Congratulations to our outgoing International Coordinators - Nimanthi, Flynn and Sanj for all their work throughout the year!
