Paul Ocim – HIV ?
We visited several of their homes and hung out in their huts.
We are working to ensure that Paul (and his freinds) get tested for HIV. Many of the kids in the village have yet to be tested despite the fact that their parents are HIV Positive. Children living with HIV can live relatively normal and healthy lives today so long as they have access to ARV’s (Antiretroviral Drugs) which keep the effects of the viral at bay.
We will be incredibly excited to return to Ogoloi in a few months and spend more time with Paul, and all of his friends.
Although we sponsor several of the children in the village ourselves, we really fee like they are all our extended family. But Paul holds a special place, both because of his beautiful spirit, and his obvious fragile situation.
To learn more about how you can sponsor a child in Ogoloi or Bukedea…or to learn about how you can join us to visit the kids next Spring (likely April or May) please contact either Jen or myself or visit
