Anele: From Hopelessness to Health

Anele: From Hopelessness to Health

   Deena Wade
   5 August 2019

 

Anele (not pictured for privacy) is a six-year-old girl from Mdumezulu in Thulwane, one of the remote areas that lacks all the basic and necessary needs for bringing up a child. Because Anele’s father worked in the Army, though, it brought hope for a bright future and for having her needs met.

When Anele was three years old, her father was diagnosed with HIV, AIDS, and Tuberculosis. After being bedridden for eight months, her father passed away. At this point, Anele was attending a Children’s Cup CarePoint because her grandmother, who also was sick, was unable to feed her. Having already lost her father, Anele soon lost her grandmother as well.

After attending the first CarePoint Wellness Clinic, the Wellness Team noticed something was wrong. Anele was sick and very frail. Her other grandmother, who Anele was now living with, gave the Wellness Team permission to test Anele for HIV, where unfortunately the results came back positive. After spending some time counseling Anele and her family, she began medication to help suppress the virus (antiretroviral), while also receiving extra nutritional supplement at the CarePoint.

Children’s Cup transports Anele on a monthly basis to a clinic to get her medication. This has brought hope to Anele knowing her health is being taken care of and her dream of being a teacher will be a reality one day. Through the medication, the meals at the CarePoint, participating in the Bible club, and now soon attending the CarePoint pre-school, Anele has much to look forward to. 

You can bring hope to other children just like Anele by giving a gift to our “Give Where Needed Most” fund. It is your generosity that helps Children’s Cup provide the resources to those in need.
