에이즈 상담가가 꿈인 플로랜스(11세)

2006.11.15
11 year old Florence Kangai………leading her classmates in a song about HIV/AIDS. The lyrics tell of loss and bereavement, of pain and suffering, and question the cost of AIDS. Florence is one of many thousands of children in Kenya whose parents have died from AIDS. Now Florence takes antiretroviral drugs to stay alive. But sometimes she doesn’t get enough food which worsens the side effects of drugs and reduces their effectiveness. Soundbite Florence “When I lack something to eat and am taking medicines I feel so awful and my body gets weak that I can’t even go to school.” Florence receives critical help from Pepo La Tumaini Jangwani – a community based HIV/AIDS support centre backed by UNICEF. Here she is given medical care, education and food. Soundbite Khadija Omar Rama “Tumaini realizes they need to give this children support to empower them so they can be self-reliant, they can be better citizens and better persons. And also to fight stigma and discrimination by making them understand and also realize our vision which is restoration of human dignity.” The meals she receives at school along with nutritional supplements from UNICEF are vital to sustain her fragile health. Without proper nutrition she will be more prone to infections and illnesses associated with HIV. In the words of the song she sings, AIDS has left her no other way. But with support from UNICEF and its partners she may be able grow up to realize her ambition of becoming an HIV/AIDS counselor and educator. This is Jane O’Brien reporting for UNICEF For every child.
