special HIV boy growing steadily at Hyderabad Care
Success story of Boy Child
The smiling boy [now at DESIRE Society Hyderabad Care Home ] was at home with uncle & his family. After the demise of his parents [ parents died with HIV ] , Uncle has taken up his responsibility. This boy started falling sick quite often. The tensed relatives took him to Govt hospital. Unfortunately, he too turned out to be HIV positive. It was a case of mother to child transmission of HIV.
Uncle’s poor economic condition led this boy suffered yet again. The health condition started deteriorating; thereby it was difficult for his uncle to take care of him. Uncle started looking for helping hand.Thus, the outreach worker of DESIRE Society came in contact with the family of this boy.
At the admission time, he was quite weak. Our team had designed specific diet chart for him which took a while for him to gain strength and restore health. The ART (antiretroviral treatment) drug adherence is maintained very well within scope of care home, IDA Bollaram. The supplementary nutrition kit[ Pediasure as one of the components ] is added up to give a balanced diet pattern for such special [HIV] child.
The health condition of this boy improved under the supervision of team of doctors and paramedical staff.This led us to have the confidence of sending him to school. He goes to private school at present with focus on over all development of child.He is pet of his teachers because of his smiley face.
He is very talented as part of regional [ TELANGANA REGION ] folk singing which he has grasped by heart. The traditional regional dancing is unique with this boy and this could happen even without any trainer teaching him for same.
The continued support from GlobalGiving over the years is able to help DESIRE Society to serve children suffering with HIV/AIDS in India.
