Malika

Here is Malika’s Story in the words of Shweta, Vice President of Rays Home for HIV Positive Children in Jaipur, Rajasthan;

” Malika came to us actually as a blessing and sunshine. We received a call from the hospital saying they have an eighteen month old girl who is very sick and her chances of survival are low. She was left outside the hospital when she was born. Government agencies shifted her to an orphanage and later on, when her health was deteriorating, they got her tests done which revealed that she is HIV Positive. We took her as a challenge to work upon and she was really taken care of by every member of the family…and soon she started showing signs of recovery. A small baby added so much laughter to the family. She was, and still is, everyones favourite. As she is the youngest, certain choices were made for her such as sending her to a well reputed play school, and now to an english medium school. 5 years old now, she has turned out to be a sweet, healthy, and lively child who is actually adding so much joy to our lives…”
