Denis is nine months now. He has grown up a lot and feels good at the moment. The boy has taken two tests at the AIDS Center - all negative. We hope that he has no infection. Due to the project support, Katya regained documents and registered for government children’s allowances. All this time, Katya has been attending peer support groups regularly at the MAMA+ Center and working actively with the project psychologist. Together with the project staff, Katya is trying to solve the housing problem, as her family of six is currently living in a one-room apartment. Denis is attending the local children’s outpatient hospital for monitoring. Due to special nutrition, his disbacteriosis and allergy have almost been cured. Katya was assisted in purchasing a crib and other things for her baby. The woman has improved the relationship with her partner – the boy’s father. Presently, they are living together, with the man working and taking care of them.
Now MAMA+ staff members are sure that the child will stay in his family. Katya and Denis will continue to receive the project assistance until the boy takes all HIV tests and examinations (usually up to the age one and a half years old). We will keep you informed of any changes in this family.
Thank you for your support!
