Margaret, Rachael and Maria’s story
Margaret is a Mildmay-trained Community Health Worker in Kenya. Here she talks about visiting Rachael, who is living with HIV and had just given birth to her third child, Maria. Rachael is one of Mildmay’s clients whom we supported to receive antenatal care, hospital delivery and antiretroviral HIV medication.
Thanks to this care, unlike her other children, Maria has been born free from HIV. Rachael lost one child to HIV and her other child is also living with HIV. Rachael is overjoyed and says,
"This feels like a new beginning full of hope. I just wish it had been so for my other children -this should not just be the dream of every parent, but the way of the future.”
