HfM Report: Peres Adhiambo's Story
Peres (age 10) developed numerous illnesses almost immediately after her parents death. Her guardian tried to treat her locally but yielded poor results. At the advice of others in the community she was tested for HIV and found to be positive.
Before HfM this would have been a terminal diagnosis, but through the support of HfM, there are funds available to cover her doctors visits and the pediatric antiretroviral medicines needed to treat the disease.
The support of HfM has literally saved this young girl's life.
