March 26th, 2016

Doreen is 32 years old ,a mother with four children. She is HIV/Aids + and was started on ARV medicine for HIV/AIDS. She had a stroke which left her paralyzed on the right side of her body. She is dependent on her aunt to care for her and administer the medicines. Other relatives are re taking care of children , the whereabouts of the father is unknown

The Hospice Team counseled the aunt about the necessary support and care that Doreen needed. The team supplied here with mattress, blankets ,sheets and toilet chair. Doreen was very grateful and full of laughter and tears of joy.

The local Hospice Jinja Community Volunteer will collect the HIV/AIDs medicine for Doreen and monitor adherence.
