One Child's Story

Berhanu (name changed) is a 13 year-old boy who received care through a LifeRise grant. He lives with his mother, who has little education and no steady income.

Hardship from HIV

Eleven years ago when Berhanu's father died of AIDS, his mother tested positive as well. Berhanu was very sickly and also found to be infected. He describes a storm of adversity: "We passed through many hardships; we had no hope, no food, all of us HIV-positive, and missing our beloved father. Life became full of crying."

Stigma

Berhanu's faced much stigma. Other families fear letting him eat, share school books, and play with their children.

Transformation through Christ

Berhanu reports, "However, since we decided as a family to follow Jesus as Lord and Savior, from then on our life changed." His mother now serves as a deacon in a local Pentecostal church; she also volunteers with another church's HIV outreach. Both he and his mother receive life-saving AIDS treatment. He says, "Now I'm not afraid of being HIV-positive because my life is in the hands of God."
