July 2015 eNews - Meet Colin and Be Inspired
Dear Power of Love friend,
Today, we would like you to meet Colin (not his real name), one of the children in our pediatric HIV care program. Colins' health has improved significantly in the last year and he is attending school as a result of your generosity and caring.
Colin is 11 years old and lives under the care of his grandmother. Last year, he got sick and was tested and found positive for HIV. To keep Colin from developing full-blown AIDS, it is critical that he doesn't catch any health-compromising opportunistic infections. As part of the pediatric HIV care program, POL's Project Nurse is counseling and educating his grandmother on how best to prevent infections and take care of him. In addition, he is visited weekly by a child health care worker for a check-up and psychosocial counseling. We are happy to hear that Colin is an active and playful fourth grader who loves school! To help care for more children like Colin, Power of Love is partnering with Global Giving.
Please donate generously to help HIV+ children like Colin continue to play, attend school, and live healthy lives. And as always, 100% of your donations go towards POL programs and no part is used for overheads.
Have a fun-filled summer,
Your friends at the Power of Love Foundationg.
