We would like to give our supportive donors an update on Alyssa who was enrolled in the clinic in August 2007. As with many of the children we meet, Alyssa’s situation was difficult with limited income and little access to food or medical care. She lived with her grandmother who has always been her greatest supporter!
Through the support of our school program, Alyssa’s health has greatly improved over the years and her viral load results are undetectable. She has been an active member of the support group, which has really helped her grow. She was a member of kids support group and now she is an active member of youth support group. This type of support was invaluable in giving Alyssa a positive outlook on life and convinced her to take her medical needs seriously. Alyssa then joined Marianist College for their hair dressing course. This was a two-year course and she graduated in May 2016.
When we recently checked back in with Alyssa, she expressed her appreciation for the support of the American Foundation for Children with AIDS in helping to make her dream come true to become a hair dresser. Please know that your generosity has truly made a difference in Alyssa’s life, and many others in our program. With our partners on the ground, the children and their families receive the support and monitoring they need to make this a very successful project. We are changing lives day after day. Alyssa feels your love, and so do we at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS.
