Message from the Executive Director (2022)
Our indefatigable commitment to providing Sexual Reproductive Health, HIV education, and free HIV screening to Bicol Region will not end with our project with AIDS Healthcare Foundation, rather it became the fuel to the fire to achieve more. The challenges we faced to meet the objectives of the programs enabled us to learn what is needed, unlearn what is not, and relearn what needs to be enhanced.
"With this, my heart is delighted to end 2022 with all the visions that turned into achievements through the efforts of our committed and compassionate volunteer members and partners who are all working together with full enthusiasm."
I am rest assured that we can do more not only in 2023 but also in the future. The affection to serve our clients is the most powerful strength we have which we want our future volunteer members to adopt.
To our future volunteers and members, may our efforts serve as your inspiration to do what is just. Never get tired to guide and educate the community. Extend your helping hands mostly to the PLHIVs. Invest a lot of effort in building relationships, partnerships, and alliances, so you will never burn bridges. Build a culture of solidarity in the community. Be patient with others and mostly with your selves. Prepare yourself for the battle because always remember that advocacy will always start with you.
To our active volunteers, CBS motivators, and counselors, I would like to thank all of you, and congratulations on a job well done! We won this year, 2022. GM will never be GM without your utmost commitment and dedication. May we continue to spread the word for a safer community against HIV.
Maraming salamat po!
