On the 1st of December 2014 in Saint-Petersburg there was a second rock concert held in support of children living with HIV. All the money gathered at the concert will be sent to support HIV positive children who are left without parental care in the “Republican Clinical Infectious Disease Hospital” in Ust-Izhora.
Location of the concert: Saint-Petersburg, “Banka” Club, Lomonosova Street, 2
The philanthropic rock marathon was launched on the 1st of December 2013, on World AIDS Day. The concert series was organized by the charity “Candle” and NP EVA with technical support from the charity “Humanitarian Action”. The venue was given for the concert free of charge and the musicians played for free as well.
Prior to the concert and during the concert itself, rapid HIV testing was available, free of charge, anonymously, and quickly (in the span of 3-5 minutes). The test was provided by “Humanitarian Action” as well as counseling from specialists. The rapid tests took place in mobile labs with medical personnel and psychologists.
