Medication Saves Father of Three

Maggie entered our care in 2007.  She is currently receiving care for HIV with three of her children.  The youngest is an infant who has been receiving care to prevent mother to child transmission.  Maggie and her children are well taken care of with us, and they have not missed scheduled medications.  She tells us that the staff at the clinic has been very supportive and encouraged her to contact the father of her children so he could receive care.  This has helped the family a lot as he had developed serious infections and was admitted. Had he not had the support of our partner or the medication provided by AFCA, dad would not have survived.

Mom and dad tell us that their family is very happy.  The children are stabilized and are now attending school.  The youngest, Joey, is now 18 months old and was recently tested after being weaned from breastfeeding.  Everyone is thrilled that he is HIV negative!

Please know that your generosity is truly making a difference in the lives of this family and many more 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.  Maggie and her husband feel your love, and do we at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS.
