“After my parents died I moved in with my uncle, but he didn’t want to keep me so I moved into a home with lots of other boys. It wasn’t very nice, so I’m glad I live here now”
After losing his parents to AIDS, Indra’s uncle decided he didn’t want an HIV positive child living with him, which is how he ended up in a government orphanage. In 2014 this government orphanage was shut down due to the poor and unsanitary conditions. That’s when Indra moved to our partner home for HIV positive children – clean, safe and most importantly, medicated.
It’s children like Indra, who are stigmatised for being HIV positive, mistreated, rejected and lost in a government system that doesn’t care for them properly, that remind us of why we do what we do.
