From August’s Report:
“We visited a fifty-one year old female patient from Chochocho village. She informed us that her husband died five years ago, when he defaulted on his treatment, resulting in his death. After this, she was employed at his place of work, but after sometime things did not go well for her.
“She suddenly fell really ill and was not able to work. When admitted to hospital she tested HIV positive and was diagnosed with Tuberculosis. Her viral load was very low and she was unable to return to the physical work she had been doing. She is now unemployed, and depends on her child’s social grant to get food and other basic needs. We gave her a food parcel and encouraged her to have a vegetable garden that will help them to have more food on their table.”
