A REFUGE FOR YOUNG BOYS
This was a home that I visited -- I won't share the name or the location. All of these young boys are living with HIV/AIDS and are being taken care of by a gentleman and a very small staff. He has dedicated his life to seeing that these kids have a good life. They are treated at a local clinic with medications and attend school just like anyone else. They are always living in fear of stigma -- if the neighbors in the community find out that there are kids living with HIV near them -- they would protest and have them thrown out -- so many issues that we don't even consider. I am grateful for my time with them and pray God's blessing and protection over their lives!
