orphaned children living with HIV/AIDS

This young lady is one of the smallest of our children here at the Center but not the youngest. She will be 5 years old in July 2010. When she arrived here on the 14th of December 2009 she was promptly sent off to the hospital in Rayong where she stayed for three months being treated for Tuberculosis. At that time she could not walk and was also severely malnourished. She had been living with her mother who is also living with AIDS and suffering the effects of dementia. However Lot is now very much improved in her general health but will not be out of the woods for at least a further 18 months.

The orphaned children at the Camillian Childcare Center come from very poor circumstances or have been abandoned at a local hospital. They have been referred to the Center through the Government’s Social Welfare Department, whom we work closely with. Many of the children arrive in the AIDS stage of the infection and with the proper care and nourishment they have returned to living with HIV.

Our activities for the benefit of orphaned children living with HIV/AIDS began in January 1996. The children need special care and attention because of the effects of the virus and the side effects of the medicine. Presently, there are sixty nine (69) children in our care. Forty (40) children live at our main Center, seventeen (17) live at the Independent Living Center and twelve (12) live at the Garden of Eden. Amongst these children, there are sixteen (16) children who are not HIV positive but their lives are affected because their parents are living with HIV/AIDS.

The fifty three (53) HIV positive children are receiving the anti-retroviral treatment and are enrolled in the Government’s Pediatric Access to Care (PATC) program.

The Camillian Childcare Center provides literacy classes to six (6) children who are unable to attend the local schools at this time. These classes will enable the children to eventually attend schools in the local area. Sixty three (63) of the children are attending classes in seven local schools. The youngest child is only 2 years old and stays with her mother.

Like all children, those living with HIV/AIDS are entitled to the best treatment and to a good quality of life, full of happiness. The children participate in activities and outings that are meant to broaden the children’s view of the world, to help develop a positive attitude to life and to improve their physical, psychological and intellectual well being.

The last I heard in late 2010 was that Nat on the left above had greatly improved since this photo was taken in June 2010.

Top Right : A day out at the beach sponsored by Mark Allsop who sponsors Em. 

Bottom Right : A Big Day at Big C on the 15th of December 2009 sponsored by the Jackalope Golfing Club and the Jesters.

Top Middle : Pairs of sisters watching a little TV before Sunday lunch. All but Nue2 on the left in the photo at the top right attends local school. Nue2 has been with us since the 11th of February 2010 and at the time she arrived she had to be taken around the center in a wheel chair. I am very glad to say that she is beating all the odd and is very much better in the summer of 2010.

Bottom Right Nat and Ben : Nat has only arrived at our center today the 23rd of June 2010 with his mother, from the small town just 6 kilometers from the center. Tomorrow he will be going to the hospital in Bangkok. Now that we have been ask to help we can only try. 

Ben arrived here in the last half of 2009 and was very poorly at the time suffering with a massive mouth infection and was admitted directly into the PCU, 5 days later he was eating normally and has not look back since that time.
