To live at the ALG HIV Day Care Centre is a hope for a better future, which has been denied to so many children. Azélia Cuna is an example of that.
She’s 11 years old and she’s on the 5 th grade. She lives with her mum and 3 older siblings (2 boys and 1 girl). She entered the Day Care Centre in 2013, where she loves to be, mainly because of the food, friends and playing football. At home she does not have running water, nor electricity. Mum works in a farming plot 1 hour way.
Before being admitted at the Day Care Centre, she had several health issues: difficulties in breathing, headaches and dizziness when she took her medication. In 2013 everything improved! Now Azélia is a happy girl with good grades, she attends the activities in the Centre and is well behaved in classes. In her free time she is a happy chid and plays a lot with her colleagues.
Her dream is to be a nun! She cherished Sister Sidónia, who monitored her at the Centre until mid-2016, and she wishes to follow her footsteps.
