How your help has changed a little life

Aisha is a 9 year old girl who lives with her paternal grandmother in the village of Ziranumbu and has been doing so since she was abandoned by her mother at the age the of 11 months.  By that time, she was wasted and crippled with one of her little feet being turned in.  When her grandma took her in, she brought her in Mulago Hospital, where she was immediately admitted due to her poor state and health. This was February 2005 and upon admission, the baby was tested for HIV and sadly, Aisha tested positive. Grandma was trained in the giving of antiretroviral medicine so that she could take care of the baby.  Grandma was ready for the challenge and vowed to bring Aisha to the hospital and to get her medicine as needed.

So, with the continuous good adherence to care and treatment from Baylor-Uganda, the provision of medicine from AFCA, and the intervention of the Community Home Based Care support at home (access to medication, pill counting, counseling), this little one was normalized and started school!  Currently, she is in primary one with support from donors.  The family was also enrolled on a food program, have been given school fees support and started as well on the Back Yard Gardening program.

This is a true success story, friends.  Aisha has a great shot at the future, with her continued care, medicine and schooling on the way. Thank YOU for being part of this story.  Thank YOU for being part of Aisha's life.  And thank YOU for giving hope.

On behalf of Aisha,
