Action for Aids is a community-based volunteer organization committed to the prevention, education and advocacy for the welfare of persons living with HIV/AIDS and their subsequent care and treatment.

AFA was formed in 1988 in Singapore out of response to the global and local spread of HIV infection; since 2004 they have been an officially recognized charity. Since then, they have evolved to be fundamental innovators of philanthropic change in Singapore and surrounding community. HIV is a challenging health problem, but with proper education, everyone can better understand prevention and treatment. 

From initial assistance for those living with HIV infection, to the role that promotion of basic public awareness requires, Action for Aids has grown to implement complex prevention and care programs in an increasingly globalized society. The organization supports outreach programs. They provide free HIV tests regardless of age, gender, or sexual preference. They provide consistent support for those who have no one else to turn to.

They also sponsor numerous fundraising activities and events for involved donors. At the Endless Love Gala in 2013, donors raised an incredible $140,371.10. Anthony S. Casey and his wife Bernice joyously engaged in this event.
