Elton John donates $ 1 million to protect people with HIV from COVID-19

Veteran musician Elton John launched a $ 1 million coronavirus emergency fund to protect people with HIV. The 73-year-old singer will make the donation through his Elton John Aids Foundation.

Today, I am proud to announce that my @EJAF Foundation is launching a $ 1 million COVID-19 Emergency Fund to ensure that our frontline partners can respond to the effects of COVID-19 on HIV care for the most marginalized communities of all the world.

Now and forever, I am committed to never leaving anyone affected by HIV behind ... Sending love to all our Foundation partners, beneficiaries, supporters, front line workers and members of our community during this time, John said in a video posted on Twitter.
