“Data provided by UNAIDS shows that in 2018, there were 37.9 million people living with HIV among them are 1.7 million children under the age of 15 years old. About 8.1 million people didn’t know that they were living with HIV.”
 
“This number shows me that it is so important to bring awareness to the public as often as we can.”
 
“Thanks to the Mercury Phoenix Trust I am so happy to share my talent as a painter to help fight AIDS worldwide in Memory of Freddie Mercury and all the other incredible souls we lost. All my artwork from Freddie Mercury is my 100% donation to @MPT.”
 
“Please get checked today and #knowyourstatus It is essential in eliminating HIV/AIDS.”
 
“As a former intensive care nurse in Berlin, Germany I witnessed for myself the suffering and the struggles of the AIDS patients. By losing my nursing teacher to this terrible HIV virus it becomes a personal call to care.”
 
“Because of the incredible work of scientists, doctors and nurses the AIDS related deaths have been reduced by more than 55% since 2004. In 2018, around 770 000 people died from AIDS related illnesses worldwide, compared to 1.7 million in 2004. The most important goal is to develop an HIV vaccine even better a cure.”
 
“So join the discussion, get tested and donate. Let’s celebrate the life and legacy of Freddie Mercury with your donation to help the research and support the AIDS patients.”
 
And we raise our glasses one more time, we’ll remember forever…
 
Your artist,
Annette Winkler
