Annet is a 10 year old girl who lives with both her parents in the village of Kirombe, Uganda. This little one's mom and dad are both in care for HIV/AIDS, making it difficult for them to take care of their small family. Annet has been receiving treatment since 2008 for HIV and cancer of the skin at Baylor-Uganda, one of AFCA's partners in Uganda. Sadly, time and time again, Annet developed swelling all over her body and had to be admitted to Mulago Hospital several times for care. The cancer swellings worsened in 2010 to the point that Annet stopped eating and talking. Her small body was weak and her parents were financially and spiritually devastated, thinking they'd lose their daughter. In addition, even though his family depended on him, her dad wasn't working on a continuous basis because his own body was fighting AIDS and he couldn't keep a job.
Annet survived with the ongoing access to medication and support provided by AFCA. Her recovery has allowed her to attend school and she is currently in primary two, thanks to the support from donors. Annet's story is one of success because of your generosity and we can't thank you enough.
Annet now has hope and you are part of her recovery and bright future! Thank you for supporting children like Annet, as without you, we can't do what we do.
