di ba matagal na tayong nagtatanung ngayon PLHIV (People Living with HIV) na tayo, kung may magagawa pa tayo, kung may maitutulong pa tayo? without divulging our identity to the general public???

this is the opportunity, kaya sign up na kayo, most especially for US who are active online in the different social media anonymously -- marami tayong maaaring itulong, all we need is proper training, i am sure maraming lumalapit sa atin online para magtanung, mahirap sumagot pag hindi tayo sigurado, hindi natin alam kung saan irereffer --- this training will answer all these issues and we can finally be confident in helping others, and know that our efforts are making our community safer and more aware.

sana ay makasama namin kayo dito...
