The boy, aged 12yrs and weighing about 14kgs was given admission at DESIE institutional care home in 2015. He was brought to our care home by his father's younger brother  when he came to know about DESIRE Society. The boy lost both the parents due to AIDS and unfortunately he is also suffering with HIV. He was literally under weight and had opportunistic infections (OIs) because of low immunity.

 After intervention, it was found  that he has never been to school .He used to pick his food from streets as his uncle's family is reluctant to support this boy due to stigma associated with this virus in the society. He was enrolled for education in beginning at  campus schooling [ L.K.G]. DESIRE Society took special care for his psychological , physical  needs and helped him by providing medical treatment and counseling. The special diet has given him chance of better living conditions.

 He is actively involved in yoga sessions and indoor games. He takes interest in nurturing younger children of basic routine works to be accomplished.

 Now, at this time juncture the boy has gained weight up to 22kgs with a stable health. He is able to attend school regularly [ outside private schooling at IDA Bollaram] and performing well in education. He has dream of becoming police officer and we want him to achieve his goals.

baby girl success story at hyderabad care home

SUCCESS STORY OF BABYANJALI[ anonymous name selected in place of correct name]


Baby Anjali[ real name not disclosed]  , belongs to a socio-economically poor back ground family. Her both parents used to work as agriculture laborers. She lost both the parents due to HIV/AIDS. After death of parents, her uncle started caring baby Anjali. Later, one day he took baby Anjali for HIV screening, but unfortunately it was found that the baby is HIV+.

Her Uncle was unable to give extra care because of her health care which he felt expensive and very attentive. Hence, he started searching for her shelter facility outside the home.The DESIRE Society Hyderabad outreach worker came in contact with them. Thus, the baby got admitted at DESIRE Society.

At the time of admission, she was physically and mentally very week. After admission in care home , the nutritious diet was maintained strictly while focusing on treating her infections by our medical team.The CD4 count got increased drastically after few months. The surprised and positive results of baby’s health growth has encouraged our team and her uncle’s family too.

The physical and health status improvement shows way for her progression. She is noticed well-disciplined among all the inmates. Right now, she is studying at“in campus” schooling within care home facility. But focus is to get her entered into the quality and formal schooling in the community along with other inmates. The RIGHT TO EDUCATION is path adapted for her and it will impact her future course of leading life pattern like any other normal child in community. Hoping that helping hand from  “ GLOBALGIVING ” community can help DESIRE Society raising this baby to realize of her dream of becoming a TEACHER in the community.
