Children living with HIV ensured with immunity in Pandemic times.
The children living with HIV in our working areas were being provided with services such as monthly individual and family counseling while they used to visit the SPPD campus apart from the nutrition kit. This was during the pre-COVID-19 days.
During the past few months since the pandemic and lock down conditions had started the children are continued to be provided with the nutrition in their homes individually. This is because of the COVID-19 norms such as social distancing that has to be followed.
The chances of the children living with HIV here being exposed to the risk of getting the corona infection is multifold considering their general poor immunity levels. And if there was any lapse in maintaining their CD4 count level due to non-availability of nutritional supplies would have proved to be extremely life threatening for every individual child living with HIV who has been a regular beneficiary of the nutritional kit.
In one particular instance, a boy called Mani (name changed) hailing from a small village , who had lost his mother and sister to HIV infection while he was a very young child. Now he is studying seventh grade and lives in the care of his maternal grandparents. And his grandparents find it extremely hard to make both ends meet and in such circumstances helping their grand son who is living with HIV is a terrible thing. Hence they thank GlobalGiving for this great help of providing the nutritional kit during the corona pandemic times.
