Girl child progression at Hyderabad care home

Girl child at Hyderabad care home

Background

Partially blind girl child was found sitting idle at Film Nagar,Sai Baba temple, in Hyderabad.She was identified by the Tv 5 [telegu news channel ] team. The child is infected  with HIV+ as both parents turned out to be positive cases.She lost both the parents with HIV earlier. After knowing about the child situation, TV5 director and his team admitted the girl in DESIRE Society,Hyderabad  Institutional care home.      

Changes in life pattern of child

 

Since the child was admitted in the DESIRE Society ,we are rendering its best for the quality of life . At the time of admission ,she was malnourished and  badly required medical attention. Main challenge was to improve her CD 4 count which was found to be very low. She was offered proper counseling, treatment and medicines for opportunistic infections (OIs) by our medical team. She has received  round the clock health care and monitoring. 

 

The child was put on ART (Antiretroviral Treatment, a lifesaving drug) immediately after admission to care home. She is also put with a balanced diet as ART has got more side effects.  DESIRE Society has put more attention on planned nutritional diet which truly helped this child to continue drug adherence. So this  led her to gain physical weight . After these continuous efforts are put by DESIRE, now her health condition is getting stable and heading towards progression.

 

Consultation for her eye treatment is under process DESIRE Society is working to bring support for the treatment and for the connectivity of the eye hospital in this regard. Extra care by care takers is focused in her case.

 

Initially,  in campus schooling is assigned in her case and she sits with zeal to study further in outside school too. This year the transformation in her schooling is observed. We got her admitted in private school along with other inmates of care home. She is performing well in studies.

 

The Global Giving support can bring in protective shell  for such children who are badly in need of extra care / spending required to get smile on their faces.

progress report of boy child at care home

Success story of Boy Child [Mayank,Name Changed]

 

The youngest fair boy [now at DESIRE Society  Care Home ]  was at home with his family. At tender age of 6 years ,he lost both parents with HIV. The mother expired two years back. The parents may not have imagined that the day will come when their children will be orphan. The father has expired recently. He is still to make out that father is not alive. His elder brother [ 10 years old ]has done the last rites of his father. His father has brought both children to our care home. Our community outreach worker has played a vital role in this regard.

 

We have given admission to both these boys at care home. They turned out to be HIV children as  it is “ mother to child transmission case”. We have taken up ART initiation usage for him immediately after the diagnosis of HIV status. The side effects are observed due to ART consumption. So, he is put on the special diet. The supplementary nutrition packs is added food value in his diet.

 

Further , the private schooling is opted for him. He is attending the LKG standard along with other inmates in care home for specified private school. He is very calm and quite boy. The school has no complain although often he is not well due to ART medication.

 

He is referred as  prince charming by school teacher as well as care takers [ mothers ] in care home.He is disciplined in all respects. This strength of his behavior has made us determined to let him grow like any other normal child in community.

 

The rejection by his immediate family will never be allowed to over shadow his growth while enrolled with us.The continued support from Global Giving over the years can make us to strengthen such children’s better  living at care home level.The child sponsorship [ nutrition /medical care / private schooling cost] as received from GLOBAL GIVING can only give us means to protect and give dignified life span for such children in India.
