We are assisting 5 PLHA children in Kancheepuram near Chennai. Divakar, Surendar, Shneha, Malakvizhi and Semparuthu. At 2 years old Divakar's mother became pregnant and received a blood test. She was found to be PLHA, then Divakar and her father were tested and both found to be positive too. Divakar is currently ill regularly, suffering from vomiting and fevers 3 or 4 days a week. She has recently been diagnosed with TB as well. She is lucky enough to still be able to live with her parents but her diet would not normally be sufficient to give her an acceptable standard of life. With your help we are able to provide her with eggs, milk and fruit, vital parts of an effective defense against TB. Alongside the medicine (given free by the Tamil Nadu state ) and vounteers that ensure it is propery taken Divakar has a chance to lead a more normal life and goto school alongside more fortunate children.
At the Daysprings Home outside Virudhunagar we've just had a new calf born into this world with another set to appear i the next few days. Both mother and calf are healthy and we all welcome a new arrival to the farm.
