Fiona is Supported in Garment Making

Fiona was enrolled in our program in December 2004 after being diagnosed HIV positive.  She was born into a family of five children and her mother was also HIV positive so life was extremely challenging.  Fiona's mother, Alice, felt hopeless and couldn't see a future for her daughter.  After weeks of psychological help, Alica was able to move on and support Fiona in a positive way.  Fiona has been a member of  the junior and senior kid's clubs and currently she is a member of youth support group at the facility. Her siblings are her the best support system and their relationship is a great blessing.

Through the educational support given to Fiona, she is currently enrolled in a dress making course at the garment making college. She is in her final year and is grateful for your generosity and the support she has received to pursue her carreer.  Fiona lives a positive life and she is driven to achieve the best.  Her greatest wish is to see herself living a good life where she can help her mother and her siblings.

The team here at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS thanks you for supporting this project and the work we do for the children in Africa.  As you start to make decisions regarding your end of year giving, please keep us in mind so we can continue our good work into 2018 and beyond.  We wish you a new year full of many blessings and as much hope as you have shared with us.  If you would like to learn even more about what we do or how you can meet some of the children you have helped, please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@AFCAids.org.
