Girl child  at DESIRE Society Hyderabad Care Home

 

Since the child was admitted in the DESIRE Society ,we are rendering its best for the quality and extended life span . At the time of admission ,she was malnourished and  badly required medical attention. She was neglected by her family members due to poor socio economic conditions. Her CD4 count was extremely 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) as her CD4 count was low. 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.

 

The in campus schooling is assigned in her case initially and use to sit with zeal to study further in outside school . Presently, she is attending private English medium school along with other care home inmates. She takes up online session for her respective classes.

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.
