In the wake of the Ebola crisis, an organization called the Institute of Charity and Public Service in the United States decided to give a man who contracted the disease free money, despite the fact that he did not have HIV and could not afford to pay for treatment.
The man, David Hodge, was diagnosed with HIV in 2014 and was offered a donation of $10,000 to support his treatment, but he was turned down.
He sued the organization, saying he was denied a “fair and reasonable opportunity” to participate in a program that he believed was meant to provide the “humanitarian benefits” of HIV testing.
Hodge was awarded $50,000 for his work with the institute, but the lawsuit was later dismissed after the institute was forced to pay Hodge $2.4 million to settle the case.
The organization also gave him an additional $1,500 for his efforts to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS, and $1.4 for his charity.
But when the man’s case was reopened in 2016, Hodge sued the institute for discrimination and said he was still denied a fair and reasonable chance to participate.
Huddle also said the organization was not allowed to offer any benefits or benefits of any kind, despite his diagnosis, because it was against the law to discriminate against people with HIV.
He argued that the institute did not offer any medical assistance or benefits to people with the disease because it could not provide any of them, despite its stated goal to provide them with a “human service.”
The institute said it could provide “financial, emotional and educational assistance” to people affected by HIV.
“We don’t believe the HIV testing program should be used as a vehicle for discrimination,” the institute said in a statement at the time.
The Institute of Charities & Public Service, a nonprofit organization that focuses on “building communities of compassion and equality in America,” has received more than $20 million in donations in the past decade.
The institute’s website says that it was founded in 1997 and that it is the largest national donor-advised fund for charities and programs that provide health and social services to the needy.
It says it operates more than 1,400 programs, supports more than 4,500 organizations and services in over 70 countries.
