More Than a Game

16 Feb


“I Got It!”,… “No, I Got It!”

Some of our beneficiary children have got it…HIV.  But here they are yelling about the falling shadow of the ball next to the girl in the dark jeans.  They are having great fun learning a new game at the Christmas party.  The following week the test results came back.  If they were HIV positive, after counseling, and if they were over 15, by guardian consent they were told.  Then, the falling shadow was not a volleyball.  Our goal is to transform their thinking: from devastation, to hope with early diagnosis and Anti-retro-viral therapy.
