Florence Is Healthy to Care for Her Children

In January 2011 Florence and her children were enrolled in care in HIV care at Baylor Uganda. Florence was enrolled with hypertension disease which later progressed to a kidney failure. She was then recommended for a kidney transplant in India. Her family contributed enormously to this cause which later happened. Florence narrates that this trip to India left her family with barely no single penny in the pocket. After the kidney transplant, Florence was further prescribed immune suppressant drugs which she takes daily in order to maintain the foreign kidney in her body. These drugs were so costly and this aggravated the already existing financial burden on her family. This saw Florence miss her medicines on several occasions but also could no longer meet basic needs for the family and especially for her HIV infected child. She and her family were always worried and starting to lose hope.

Thanks to AFCA funds, Baylor Uganda procured these badly needed drugs for Florence so she could now access them for free. This greatly improved her health and restored a great sense of hope again in her life. She felt she could now live longer to watch over her HIV infected child. The family got a huge relief and can now save some monies for other basic needs for the household.

Everyone here at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS, and our partners in Africa. thank you for your continued support of this important project.  If you would like to learn even more about this project and others, please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@AFCAids.org.
