pascom Supporting AIDS Beratungsstelle Counselling Service

December 14th, 2023 | Deggendorf, Germany - Everyone at pascom is proud to once again be supporting the Oberfalz AIDS counselling services as part of our 2023 community donation campaign.

Every year, the team at pascom look to give back to those in our community who, for whatever reason, need help, counselling and support. Those who have followed us over the years will know that we look to support those charitable organisations which are often overlooked simply because of the area in which they work is considered taboo or stigmatised by society and 2023 is no different.

Our €1,000 donation to the AIDS Counselling Support Service will, in part go towards funding for the organisation’s “Spritzenaustausch” (Needle Exchange) programme. The transmission of both HIV and Hepatitis C viruses spread by the shared use of dirty needles amongst drug users is serious issue with widespread consequences beyond HIV and Hep C.

Obviously, the services on offer do not stop with the Needle Exchange programme. Together in partnership with organisations including Raphael, the Bavarian Red Cross, Drogenhilfe and Caritas, the Oberfalz AIDS counselling service also looks to educate and rehabilate drug users as well as providing Hepatitis B vacination services. Beyond this, the centre provides crucial counselling services for persons affected by HIV and their relatives as they mentally and pyschologically overcome the challenges that an HIV infection can often indirectly lead to.

Quirin Pasquay, pascom CEO:

Stigma and taboo within society are hard to dislodge. However, the efforts of charities who operate in stigmatised fields is just as vital to society, but funding is often extremely challenging to source. This is true for the AIDS Beratungsstelle in the Oberfalz and it is our hope that through our donation, we can help fund their Needle Exchange programme, that not only helps combat the transmission of HIV and Hep c, but also provides a vital life line to drug users and an opportunity to reach out to them and support their rehabilitation in the future.

Hans-Peter Dorsch, Head of the Aids-Beratungsstelle Oberpfalz

Alongside all the engagement, psychosocial work also requires a significant amount of financial suppot. pascom’s donation will help us to provide important prevention work and in individual cases to provide persons with HIV, who are in need, with financial support.
