An Update on Hillary

Hillary
Hillary

Hillary is an HIV+ boy who is part of our program in Mombasa, Kenya.  He is 9 years old and is full of life. He loves to play soccer, to run around yelling with his friends and to eat ugali (corn mush) with greens.  His cheeky grin is contagious and everyone who meets him loves him!

Hillary isn't only a cute kid.  He is also a kid who wants to be something important when he gets older.  First, he'd like to be a doctor.  Then, he'd like to be a priest.  Sometimes, though, he'd really like to be a teacher.  There are times, he tells me, that he's like to be a gardener so he can see things grow.  I shake my head when he comes up with a different dream each time he's asked, but really, he is just a little boy who knows that going to school is very important and the best thing is, he loves to learn.  

He is doing well in class 4 at St. Jude Academy, where his fees are paid for by you all, the generous donors who help us keep deserving and needy children in school. He gets up early, washes up and heads to school five days a week, eager to see what else he can be when he grows up.  Whatever he finally decided to do, I can't wait to hear about it.  

But, for now, Hillary is a normal little kids who attends a junior support group at the clinic in Mombasa and because of the counseling and support he receives there, he is able to take his medicines without any problem.

Thanks, friends, for supporting children like Hillary.  You are making a world of different.  We know it, they know and you know it.  Please don't stop...there are so many other children who'd like to have the opportunity to go to school, too.

Happy Holidays!
