We are thrilled to report that we saw four negative HIV tests in children under two years old. We also have several babies who are due to be born soon, with all moms-to-be doing well. One of these ladies named Aneni came in with a particularly large tummy, and we found out that she is actually expecting twins!

In addition to treatment and medicines, our patients often go hungry, and lack access to many basic necessities.
