Chai was discharged from hospital 2 weeks ago. He has meningitis (TB of the brain) and the virus has most likely spread to the central nervous system. Doctor has performed a Lumbar Puncture Test to find the cause for symptoms possibly caused by an infection (such as meningitis), inflammation, cancer, or bleeding in the area around the brain or spinal cord. Chai is very weak and homesick but his family is not willing to take him home. If he is with his family may help him emotionally. He is back with us in Crisis Care Home. AIDS kills but discrimination & rejection kills faster. He is not able to walk and not able to control his bowel and his speech is a slur. Thank you for all the residents who helps to bath, clean and assist in his movement.

Last week on the way back from Chai’s hospital appointment we drop by his house to collect his IC. When we reach his house he was not welcome into the house. His mother couldn’t even look at him or touch him. It breaks my heart when Chai call for his mum and he broke down and cries. How can a mother reject his own son? His father is not happy that we are helping and keeping him alive. How can this be happening!

Yap who is blind because of the virus infection has not been visited by his family members for the past 11/2 years. His brother lives nearby, in Cheras. AIDS kills but discrimination & rejection kills faster. Yap needs all the support he can get after losing his eyesight. How can this be happening!

Wai who has been with us for the past 1 year has not been visited by his family member. When he came, he has full blown AIDS with many illnesses but has since recovered. His family who are in Ipoh, esp. his bro has not come to visit him. AIDS kills but discrimination & rejection kills faster. How can this be happening!

A young widow passed away with a broken heart. She was HIV+ and was shunned by her family members and community. Her 14 years old son has to stop going to school and has to go to work to help support the family. AIDS kills but discrimination & rejection kills faster. How can this be happening!

Thank you for praying and working together to put an end to discrimination and put a stop to HIV/AIDS.
