A Glimpse of Lives of HIV-AIDS Positive Couple
Their story goes back to teenage rebellion and drug use. There must be a lot more to it. The doctor from SHALOM has known them and their families for a long time. He has reached out to them to try to help them improve their livelihoods by getting them a couple of pigs to fatten and sell.
Fortunately neither of their two children have contracted AIDs and the mom is able to get low cost anti retroviral medicine from the India government health post.
Unfortunately, the father has tuberculosis and will not be able to receive the anti-retroviral drugs for AIDs until the TB is cured.
Nevertheless, they are trying to live. He works as a construction laborer. (It’s hard to imagine how he has the strength!) She works to earn a little extra money by rolling cigarettes and raising the two pigs the Shalom doctor helped them obtain.
