Her story

Natacha, 4 years old, has been HIV positive since birth. Shortly after her brother was treated for acute malaria, Natacha also became seriously ill. She was convulsing and had a severe attack of malaria. As her mother could not afford to pay for the hospital costs, we financed the overall treatment. Natacha received emergency care (perfusion, rehydration, anti-malaria and antipyretic treatment). She also suffered from moderate anaemia, which was linked to severe malaria and aggravated by her HIV, which has also led to malnutrition. Despite her life-threatening condition, she was able to recover thanks to hospitalization. We also financed a monthly food supply so that Natacha and her older brother Nestor can benefit from a diet adapted to their age and their HIV pathology (which is associated with a very high risk of extreme undernutrition).
