    Im Sabrina, Social worker from The Salvation Army Kuching. Recently we receive a case where the mother and the child (1 years and half) has detected with HIV positive and now they are under medication. They did not a permanent place to stay and the husband has pass away last year October 2013 and suspected also because of HIV. Im looking forward to your advice and seek help from your if we can send them to your shelter since In Kuching here we did not have a shelter for patient with HIV.

    Thanks
    Sabrina
