Edna Akoth and Jemima Atieno are siblings and, together with their mother, they are cared for at our partner clinic at Mikindani, Mombasa. When we first met them, these girls and their mom were in pitiful shape - hungry and sick and desperate for help. Upon testing, it was discovered that the three of them are HIV+, so all were admitted into AFCA's program.
Now, a couple years down the road, they are all healthy and doing well. The girls love going to school, where Edna is in form 4 at Changmwe Secongary School and Edna is in class 2 at Sir Henry Academy. They are so proud of their uniforms and accomplishments, as our we! All of them are breathing a sigh of relief because they don't have the pressure of paying for the girls' school fees anymore and because they know that getting a good education is going to help all of them.
These girls are a great example of the difference a little hope can make in the lives of a child. Thank you for being part of this work!
