Parents See A Bright Future for Patti

In 2014, at just 6 months of age, Patti was in danger of losing her life. She could hardly breathe and eventually became unconscious. She was rushed to the hospital where she was diagnosed with a life threatening AIDS related condition for which she was hospitalized. She was prescribed Cotrimoxazole injection, a very expensive drug, which was out of
stock at the hospital at the time. The parents had to foot the bills of the medication but it was very costly for them.

While hospitalized, Patty was also tested for HIV and found to be infected with it. This was another blow to the already devastated parents. Patty was then referred to our clinic for further management. Thanks to the AFCA donations, she was able to freely access all the prescribed medicines for her health conditions. Her parents were so grateful and were informed that
there was a group of friends with AFCA that supported to provide lifesaving medicines for children with AIDS. Patty got better and is currently thriving well (virally suppressed from the most recent viral load results). She is now 5 years old and enrolled in elementary school this year. Her teacher is so proud of her school performance and joyous character. Her parents are so grateful and they requested Baylor Uganda to send special thanks to AFCA.  The family had completely lost hope and felt their baby couldn’t make it. Currently they are living happily and expecting a very bright future for Patty!
