For now 3 months, the hope of living longer with HIV/AIDs and becoming doctors specifically padeatricians for Daniel and Norah have been revived. We your generosity, we have been paying a motor cycle to take Daniel and Norah to hospital to pick their ARV drugs that are given on monthly basis. We also provided them with all school requirements and tuition fees. We made arrangements with the school that Daniel and Norah together with 4 other children who are living with HIV/AIDs and studying in the same school be provided with nutriotious porridge each morning before they take their medication. We provided soya flour mixed with silver fish, peanut paste and millet. They are now enjoying their studies and copying up well with their ARV medication.
Daniel and Norah of ages 12 and 14 years respectievly lost both of their parents to HIV/AIDs and are also both living with HIV/AIDs. The two kids do not know where the their father comes from since the mother brought them to her home while still very young and when the mother died they continued to stay with the grandmother. Unfortunately, the grandmother does not love them and has often called them LIVING CORPSES who dont deserve any care because they will soon die like their parents. The grandmother denies these kids food, soap and sometimes makes them sleep outside on the verandah. Infact currently, our organization is working with the local leadership because we would like to rent for them a small grass thatched house where they can peacefully stay. Daniel and Norah are severely traumatised because opf the stigma to the extent they had abandoned walking to hospital to pick drugs or take their ARV medication because they wanted to die.
We cannot thank you enough for restoring hope to Daniel and Norah. There are more than 25 other Daniels and Norahs in Katakwi district where we recently opened our new office. Sharing about our project with your network will go along way to help spread the word out there and help orphaned children living with HIV/AIDs live healthy lives.
