Through Global Giving we from Chevaliar Roche Society we are serving for the development of the CLHA. During this occasion when we consider their need and care it was found out it was necessary to take steps to look after their dental care.
CLHA were getting some treatments for their health improvement. But they had no enough idea about dental care and cleaning of teeth in a proper manner. Most of the children had the bacterial infection in their teeth and tooth pain.
Therefore we arranged a dental camp at Derose centre on 03.04.12, 4.04.12. In this camp two dentist named Dr.Arun Dominic & Dr.Vijay participated. In this camp 36 HIV / AIDS infected children attended. Dr.Vijay have enough ideas about the dental care and awareness with the help of power point presentation. It was clear and easy to be understood by the children participated. He also explained the brushing method of tooth with a visual presentation. Along with him Dr.Arun Dominic have the explanation of brushing the teeth in upper and lower jaws. Children also asked some questions to the doctors about their dental problems. They answered patiently the questions of the children kindly. The doctors also described about the variety of the tooth paste and tooth brushes. Really it was a necessary and good programme for the children. Through this programme we emphasized about the dental care and maintenance to the children also it encourages the children to take care about their teeth and for the proper activities towards that.

My name is Abishek My fathers name is Mani. Our native place is Sivakasi. My father is an auto drivers. I have two elder brothers. Now I am 11 years old and accomplishing 6th standard towards 7th standard. My mother passed away when I was 3 years old. Now I am growing at my grand father’s house. My two elder brothers are living with my father at another town.
Once in three months my father would come to our grand father’s house to see me. My elder brothers don’t come to see me they forgot even they have an younger brother. The reason for this is that I have been infected with HIV. They are not infected with HIV. When I see my friends who are playing and living with their brothers, really it is sad to me. Therefore even I am unable to play with other children happily. Our grand father and grand mother are very much fond of me. My grant father is working for daily wages. Hence with his small amount of income, it is very hard for him to maintain the family once in two months my grand father take me to the ART centre at Tirunelveli. The doctors there diagnosed me and found my CD4 is very low. Hence he suggested my grand father to feed me with good nutrition. He also advised me to take the ART of CD4 is not increased. My grand father and grand mother are in poor condition. They are unable to feed me with nutrition. Before 6 months through the Global Giving project workers from Chevaliar Roche Society came and they are providing me nutritional support. Regularly they are visiting me every month at our 3home and follow up properly. Hence I feel satisfied in my mind. Now the doctor has checked and found the CD4 has increased for me and he said the ART is not necessary for me. Hence I am thankful for Global Giving and Chevaliar Roche Society.
HIV PREVENTION FOR SHG ANIMATORS
HIV is prevalently found every where and it infects anybody easily at any time if they are not careful. Mostlt women are infected by their husbands. We arranged a HIV prevention meeting at Levinchipuram area, Thoothukudi because most of the lorry & Truck drivers daily wage saltpan labourers are living here. That is why we preferred to have the training programme of HIV / AIDS prevention for SHG women group animators and representatives at Levinjipuram area. In this training programme 22 animators and representatives from levinjipuram participated eagerly. Mrs. Banu HIV / AIDS prevention counselor, Thoothukudi offered this training. She offered the training on spreading method of HIV, Non spreading method of HIV and prevention methods. Also she emphasized about having the test of PPTCT and VCTC (HIV Test) through these tests everybody can know about himself or herself. If they are found affected with HIV, they can take steps to avoid the AIDS disease. If it is not so they can take HIV prevention methods. During this programme we issued the HIV prevention free hand bills to the participants. All animators and representatives participated in this programme felt satisfied about this training and awareness of HIV / AIDS.
