Elton John Launches $1 Million Emergency Fund
THE ELTON JOHN AIDS FOUNDATION IS LOOKING FOR SOLUTIONS TO HELP PEOPLE ALREADY LIVING WITH OR AT SEVERE RISK OF HIV/AIDS
(CNN) – As the number of people with the coronavirus goes up every day all over the world, people are looking for answers; including Elton John.
The star is one of many stepping up in the fight against the coronavirus, creating a one million dollar emergency fund.
It’s all through his aids foundation.
His focus is on people who have or are at risk of getting HIV and aids.
Those people become extra vulnerable because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
So he’s asking anyone who has “strong potential to address specific challenges” for them.
On his website, he said more than 37 million people are already living with HIV and he wants to make sure they still have access to HIV-related prevention, testing, care and treatment.
Something at risk right now because of the virus.
