CASE STUDY :
Name : Selvi
Age : 8
Address : C/o Mrs. Murugamma
My Name is Selvi. Up to my age of 3 years our family condition was very happy . My father is a farmer. We all lived together along with our grand parents. When I was 4 years old, my father expired we thought he died of some sickness
After the death of my father my mother’s health condition became weaker day by day. My grand parents thought that my mother became weak because of the death of my father. Ottapidaram is here our village . My mother went to the G.H at Ottapidaram and had the medical checkup over there . She was not recovered. Therefore my uncle took my mother to thoothukudi Medical College Hospital for further treatment. There the doctors doubted about my mother’s sickness and suggested for HIV Test. Eliza test was performed to my mother. In the report it was found out my mother has HIV +ve . Being heard this my mother got shocked. Following this another Eliza test was done to my mother. It was confirmed that my mother has the HIV +ve . Then only all of our family members knew that our father expired of HIV. All of our family members were pathetic about my mother. My mother was very sad and found weeping always. Following this I was also taken to the hospital for HIV test. It was also found that I had HIV +ve . Now all of our family members attention and mercy turned towards me. As the HIV +ve was not found in the time my CD4 level was very low. Therefore my mother and I are taking ART regularly. People were sad about us and nobody help us. Now the GlobalGiving project is much helpful to us.
