Health story

She is a migrant worker…
She is 14 years old …
At her age, she is supposed to be in the school…
She works in a fish factory…
Now she is an orphan…
Her name is ……………

This is just one of the stories of the children of those migrant people living with AIDS.

When I saw her tears fell down in her gentle face, I didn’t know how to please her and to comfort her at the same time. While looking at her, I also realized that there was also a tear inside of my heart, which I pretended not to cry.

As I was talking to her, I thought to myself, who can comfort her.

She doesn’t know about what will happen with her mother and for the future that awaits here.

But for me, I truly know that her mother will sleep in peace soon because her mother’s condition is already deteriorating. She has stage 4 AIDS.

This is a particular story of a daughter of one of our patients. And until now, I cannot forget her tears that fell down from her eyes in one of our home visitations.

We tried to send her mother to the hospital 3 or 4 times but it seems her situation is getting worse and worse. Gradually, we realized that her mother can’t take medicines and food anymore, because she was so sick and her energy cannot support her to sit and stand.

Finally, on 19 September 2013 at the hospital, her mother was freed from all of the pains and worries in the world….. and  totally rest in peace.

At that time her eyes were full of tears and her face full of worries. We try to accompany her family until everything is going well.
