She is 6 years old and lost parents with HIV at tender age . She was under-weight at time of admission. So diet chart is maintained for her. Nutrition is given utmost importance for her. The balance of food/medical care has been put on alert for her.
Supplementary nutrition is added to boost her immunity level. Her CD 4 count was low but over a period of time it got improved a lot. The doctor advise was followed strictly for her. We had special round of discussion covering her health status on regular basis. This led to improvement in her health status on fast track.
Tangible improvement was seen within 6months of her joining. She has gained weight and height within short time frame. She has learned all routine works of brushing her teeth, taking bath, eating food herself ,dressing up at her own etc.
She improved self-confidence, going to private school now and she wants to become a teacher.
The GlobalGiving is helping her to grow nicely like any other normal child in community.
Background details: She has joined DESIRE Society when she was 4 years old. She lost both her parents with HIV at tender age. She was brought to relatives along with her elder sister[ normal child ] after demise of parents.
She started falling sick and diagnosed with HIV. At this point of time , relatives were reluctant to keep her. They started looking for orphanage which can take care of HIV children .
She was admitted in our care home because of basic need being a HIV girl and neglected in family. Once admitted in care home , she was looked after by care takers and elder children. Being the youngest , she got extra attention in care home. Nutritive diet was regularly followed as per advice from dietician.
ART drug adherence was strictly followed. She has adjusted to drug usage promptly. Nutrition/medical balance has put her in a stable condition.

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.
