The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is donating $4 million to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to fight HIV/AIDS in Asia. The donation aims to ease "the human, social and economic devastation" of the disease, according to a press release issued by the federation's regional office in Bangkok. The money will support projects in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Papua New Guinea, and 11 countries in the Pacific region. Earlier this year, OPEC donated $3.2 million to Central America and $8.1 million to Africa to fight HIV/AIDS.
