Nutritive food supplements to inmates living with HIV & AIDS

HIV Testing And Medical Camps for Children

Annually, Wells of Hope holds medical camps for the children; and they are aimed at creating
more health awareness among children and helping them know their HIV status.

Review and care for children living with HIV & AIDS

In partnership with health centres and hospitals, children with serious illnesses or those living with HIV & AIDS receive medical care. The schools have a professional nurse who daily reviews the
children’s health.

Medical Screening and Testing

Spouses and mothers/fathers of inmates are provided with free HIV counseling and testing sessions; to prevent infection, re-infection and the spread of HIV/AIDS by spouses of prisoners upon the imprisonment of their spouses and among their grandmothers. They also screen other diseases like cervical cancer.

We are so thankful for the monthly donations of food supplements we get from Wells of Hope. At the beginning of 2019, my skin had started peeling off and I was so pale because of malnutrition; I became so skinny, but now my BMI has increased from 14.6 to 22.8
