A team of doctors assigned for this task. Daily health record was maintained. As a result, the girl gained weight with a significant jump in CD 4 counts.

Success story of Girl Child [Little Princess]
The little princess- girl [now at DESIRE Society Care Home] was at home with his family. She has Younger brother & one twin brother to her. The 6 years old girl lost her mother when she was just 4 years old. The cause of death turned out to be HIV positive case. After death of mother, the father diagnosed with HIV started looking for an orphanage.
The paternal family also wanted the children to be admitted in orphanage. Both his younger brother and herself was admitted in our care home. All the three children in family are diagnosed with HIV disease. We have taken up the task of HIV testing and ART usage for him. Recently she lost his father too. We are committed to work for such children so she will be taken care by all means.
The primary task of nutritive food is well planned and goes as per diet chart at care home level. The healthcare is prime concern for such children. She is regularly put on ART medication. The balance of food/ medical care has improved the overall growth of this girl. The discipline taught for daily routine in this context is followed by her. She is quite obedient in all respects while undertaking daily routine schedules.
She takes extra care when it comes to look after the elder inmates at care home level. The discipline learned is passed to other inmates with her involvement. At home with parents, she has started her education in Government school. After the admission with us, she is admitted into a private school. The English medium private school studies is also adapted well at her end. She is scoring well in private school. The general knowledge at this elder age is quite impressive. She wants to be the scorer in her class. We at DESIRE Society are going to give extra care for fulfilling her dreams.
The continued support from like-minded people over the years can make us to strengthen such children’s better living at care home level.

CHILD , Baby girl , PROFILE FORM
MOTHER’S STATUS (Expired)
FATHER’S STATUS (Expired)
The baby girl is currently 4 years old. She is a very vibrant child. Both her parents were reactive Mahi has an elder sibling who is non-reactive. She lost her mother within few months after her birth. Due to a lot of family issues her father was absconding. She and her sibling were been looked after by her father’s mother. However unable to make ends meet for the siblings, her grandmother used to take them and beg on their village streets in order to fill their stomachs. This act by her grandmother was informed by their village neighbour to her mother’s sister who lives in Mumbai. On hearing this, her aunt then went to the village and brought both the children to her house.
On arriving to Mumbai, her aunt medically tested both the siblings for HIV out of which she was detected as reactive and the other sibling as non-reactive. She was immediately put on ART treatment at the Government Hospital. However her aunt family was willing to look after the non-reactive child but was very unsupportive of allowing her to live with them as she was reactive. Due to this, her aunt faced a lot of harassment from her husband and was even thrown out of the house. Her aunt then came across the ORW of DESIRE Society at the Government Hospital. After understanding the organization and also since she was unable to look after her own family, with a heavy heart her aunt placed her at DESIRE Society so that she could be looked after well with equal opportunities and would also get a chance to move towards a bright future.
DESIRE Society has put her into special care. Diet chart is maintained in order to give boost to their health. The supplementary nutiriton kit is introduced to raise her immunity. Medical checking is routinely done to avoaid any opportunistic infection to happen.
She is a very loving child. After coming to DESIRE Society, she is very happy and also had adjusted well with the other children. She loves singing and also loves to have sweet dishes like gulab jamun, ragulla, kheer, chocolates. She also loves playing with dolls.
DESIRE Society has put her into the private school in the this academic year.
