Remembering Jonso: A Story for Treatment Literacy

When young Jonso passed on last year, we all felt the loss and pain that any death of a 5 year old would bring to family, friends and community. He was HIV positive and staying with his grandmother Theresa, in Magaya village in Zimbabwe. At the hospital, it was clear that Jonso may have survived if he had been started on ART early, if he had complied with the treatment regime; if his grandmother knew a little bit more about how to support this young boy with conditions necessary for taking the medicine, and if Jonso and his grandmother could be helped with transport costs to regularly go to the health centre for medical check up!

Immediately, as a Trust we committed to build a strong drive for ART Treatment Access and Literacy for children in our community. We have been working closely with SAFAIDS, AVERT and AJWS to build the knowledge of our staff, volunteers and other community workers. During these 16 days of activism against gender based violence, we are reaching out to the community through the faith networks and other organisations, and schools. We know that we can help our children to live life in its fullness, healthy and with all their potential. What they need is quality access to treatement and medicine.

The opportunity we have to participate in the Open Challenge for Global Giving will enable Rozaria Memorial Trust to enhance its future potential for fundraising and helping other children. We are reaching out to you today, to talke to your friends and network; to give and support our work. We know that we can together make a difference in another child's life.
