Just heard that we can make a difference

Well i just heard that we can make a difference. We didn't do much - met with a community of people living with HIV and supporting one another in Kenya. I found out that the children (18) were not getting treatment because the centre for them was too far and the cost too great. Well i couldn't move the centre (or thought i couldn't) but I did have enough money in my jeans to allow the kids to make the first trip to Nairobi for care. I asked the good pastor looking after them to ask if paediatric treatment could come to them. He did and the answer was yes - so now the kids only have to walk 7 km. to the nearest VTC centre. What a relief - and we will continue to try to helps to that they can hire a car taxi to get them to care monthly. I can just imagine seeing those kids the next time i am in kenya!!

now we just have to make sure that stigma doesn't destroy the childhood of these wee ones.

Hi Peg - good to see you here.

I am in touch with a Kenyan woman named Leah who is looking to do more locally. Maybe we can put you two in touch. I'm hoping she'll come on line shortly here at PulseWire and we can link you up with her.

Cheers. Great to see you online!
