Transformation in life of Baby GREESHMA


Greeshma, 10 year old HIV positive girl is one of the residents of our care home at Hyderabad, India.She was brought to us when she was around 2 year old.


Greeshma’s mother died after her delivery due to HIV status. Unfortunately her father was also a victim of HIV. Though he wanted to foster the baby, but he could not due to his unsupported health condition. When he came to know about DESIRE Society through one of our regular health and nutrition camps in the communities, he approached us for admitting baby at DESIRE Society. After two years he got remarried another lady (HIV positive) who made a barriers between father and baby Greeshma.


Now he has completely stopped visiting baby Greeshma, because he has got two more children after remarried. But DESIRE Society has shouldered all responsibilities of baby Greeshma to ensure a possible future like how we are hoping for rest 74 such needy children staying at DESIRE Society, Hyderabad India. The food and medical care has put her into the normal track of day-to-day running.Although she falls sick often due to opportunistic infections but our team of health care is handy in making her to return back to normalcy.


Greeshma has always expressed her gratitude withoutboundaries (through her smiles)for being part of DESIRE Society’s family. Now she is able to attend in-campus schooling and performing good scoring in education without absence.


Hope you shall remain supportive to baby Greeshma for enabling a positive life with dignity through Global Giving platform.
