Raising awareness for World Aids Day 2019

Raising awareness for World Aids Day 2019

World Aids Day 2019 took place on Sunday (December 1st) and at Fuel Card Services, we’re this year helping to raise awareness of this debilitating and deadly illness.

Founded in 1988, World Aids Day is an opportunity for communities, businesses and people around the world to band together in the fight against HIV infection.

 

Rock the Ribbon Together in 2019

In the UK, more than 100,000 people are currently living with HIV, while this figure rises to more than 36 million globally.

Despite the fact the virus was only discovered in 1984, there have so far been more than 35 million recorded deaths attributed to HIV or Aids, making this one of the most destructive global pandemics in history.

Every year, World Aids Day is an opportunity to remind the public that this issue has not gone away, with this year’s theme being ‘Rock the Ribbon Together’ – it will highlight the isolation and loneliness that many of those diagnosed with HIV have to go through.

At Fuel Card Services, we endeavour to help support a wide range of charities and good causes. It is important to us that we continue to improve awareness around the efforts that are being made to tackle some of the world’s biggest problems, such as Aids.

We have an ongoing commitment to make a difference and that’s a statement that all of our staff are proud to stand by.

At FCS Europe, our people are the heart of our business and we are constantly striving for excellence. We are always looking for new people to join our ever-expanding team, from a new office in Halifax to a new office in a new country: Germany.

Both initiatives are a perfect fit for Fuel Card Services, as we pride ourselves on embracing and exploring innovative new practices, as well as striving to promote gender equality and support more female entrepreneurs.
