Started in 1983, the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial takes place every third Sunday in May and is led by a coalition of some 1,200 community organisations in 115 countries hosting local memorials that honour the lost and raise awareness about HIV.
This year’s Candlelight Memorial takes place on 16 May, when New Zealanders will be gathering in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Invercargill to remember friends, family and whānau who have died. We invite you to come and stand with us as we mark this important occasion.
