A New Arrival

From a report by Micheal Bobbert:

“On the 26th of March, at Jerusalem Trust, we met a young boy who had relocated from another province to live in Mpumalanga to live with his unemployed aunt.  He is taking HIV and Spinal cord treatment.  Where he used to live, he had been forced to drink traditional medicine, but he has now been referred to the clinic and given the treatments.  It has been a few months since he has been adhering to the treatment, and he is now recovering very well.

“When he came from the Western Province, he did not bring any of his previous school documentation, which made it nearly impossible for the local schools to register him. Because Masoyi HBC has a very healthy working relationship with local schools and other stakeholders, Project workers and a social worker went to one of the high schools, and he was registered and given books.  The school principal and other teachers were notified about the boys’ condition and the school management agreed to look after him.”
