Pia Wurtzbach now ‘Madrina’ of Latino Commission on AIDS

17 May

Thestandard.com.ph – Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach adds another milestone in her exciting reign. She was recently named the newest Madrina (patroness) of the Latino Commission on AIDS, lending her voice to the important cause of educating the world about AIDS prevention and giving support to her Miss Universe advocacy to raise AIDS awareness among the youth.

Pia spoke eloquently during the Latino Commission on AIDS Cielo Gala calling for an end to the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS. The Madrina title followed her being named in February as official ambassador of HIV prevention by the New York-based Aid for Aids organization.


“I am so honored to be this year’s Madrina for the Latino Commission on AIDS. I am so excited to finally give a talk on HIV awareness after a long time of training and visits (sic) in different AIDS organizations. I thank you all for accepting me as a part of your family and trusting me to be the spokesperson for this cause. I feel so welcome,” Wurtzbach said upon accepting the task succeeding Miss Universe 2014 Paulina Vega. Read the full article here.
