I have the privilige to work in the Constellation Support Team. Besides that I am Marlou. Born in the Netherlands 42 years ago, now having my home in France together with Raymond and our four children. Most of all I enjoy the days where the worlds of 'work' and 'life' meet.

My friends in so many places of the world, all working towards the same goal - all in our own context and from our own strength.

  • Alain DIBAKANGA Zolana

    Elle n'a que 8 ou 9 ans, orpheline de père, sa mère s'est remariée à tshikapa, et la petite Bellefie vit chez sa grand-mère partenelle. Elle se retrouve aujourd'hui avec le sida! Elle vient d'être accusée de sorcière parceque les affaires dans cette famille ne marche pas comme il fallait et sa cousine de moins d'une année était sérieusement malade qui a poussé la famille d'aller consulter une Eglise...Mais,certains membres de sa famille pense faire quelque chose, malgrè le manque de moyen.Déjà, à l'hôpital Kimbanguiste de kimbanseke, elle a été consulté et suivie par le medecin,mais, la petite n'est prise en charge, et le medecin le propose d'aller à l'hôpital général de kinshasa, mais, la famille ne sait pas que faire parcequ'elle n'a pas de moyen.
    Hier,son oncle partenel est venu solliciter l'assistance pour la recherche d'une prise en charge socio medicale à la fille qui a le droit d'être assister et nous avons nous le devoir d'assister Bellefie...
    Cet oncle est convaincu que, Bellefie ne pourra pas rester sans assistanct malgrè le soit disant du pasteur...
    A tous les compétents, cet appel...
    Que faire pour Bellefie?
  • Rituu B. Nanda

    Hi Marlou,

    Just a hi. How are you doing? A different way to connect, eh!

    Warm regards,

  • Alain DIBAKANGA Zolana

    Salut SALT,
    Je vous annonce que la petite BELLE FIE a été orientée depuis hier, au centre AMO CONGO, de N'djili Q/7 et bénéficiera de la prise en charge médicale de ce centre, ceci après la confirmation de test VIH qui a démontré la présence du virus dans son sang.Elle sera donc aujourd'hui à leur centre de kasa vubu pour passer au test déterminant la charge virale, un test CD4 et autres tests, et pourra commencer les ARV qu'après les résultats de ceux-ci.
    Ce qui reste maintenant, c'est d'être près de la famille pour la motiver et soutenir du côté nutritionnel et autres, car, il a été demandé à la famille de bien assurer l'alimentation de Bellefie, chose un peu difficile pour la famille, mais sa grand mère a promis qu'elle fera tout malgré sa situation socio économique, et bien vous aussi, vous pouvez la soutenir...Vous, c'est tout celui qui se sent disposer à assister cette fillette de 9 ans qui passe cette année en 3 ème primaire, malgré son état.
    Les examens exigés, à kasa vubu, on doit amener 10$, qui semble déjà être difficile à être trouver...
    A vous de réagir!
    La grand mère de Bellefie vous remercie tous pour ce que vous avez fait pour BELLEFIE!
    Qui, maintenant, est entre les mains d'un médecin.

  • Sophie Kotanyi

    Dear Marlou

    Tanks for your reaction and well come greetings.
    No I have not jet contact with Virgilio and Ricardo in Mozambique; could you put me in direct contact ? takes too much time to search them in the member list. I would like to comunicate with them directly. The question is, if I invite the colleges with who I work and worked in Mozambique the last years, who are active in several ONGs...however, I have still to understand better the tools of Compétence, which seam to be similar to our approch based on Paulo Freire acknowlegment of people own knwolege which we valorize as the starting point, supporting a respectfull cultural approach of HIV/AIDS and health search.
  • Sophie Kotanyi

    Tanks a lot Marlou. I will do that. Wish you a good day !

    Dear Marlou

    Around March 2009,at the room 234 of general hospital of NTB. There was a house wife, whom her first husband heritage her HIV. Her husband passed away caused by tuberculosis infection opportunistic (it could seem the trigger is HIV). She lived in the countryside; it took 10 hours ride by car to reach her village. She worked as the farmer for some else rice field. Her first husband was a migrant worker (in Malaysia as coconut plantation keeper). In her second married, she started having frequent illness. She detected had HIV. Her second husband is staying negative up to now. She got the treatment for IO and also had the ART. When she had better condition she went back to her home village. On May 2009 I met her again in the same room, she told me that her husband prohibited her to consume ARV. Her husband thought, that ARV gave her wife another diseases (the fact that was only light side effect). They are both uneducated and low knowledge of heath and hygienic life and also part of poverty. Half an hour before, she released her last breath. She apologized to me because she broke her promised to keep the adherent in her days. She also gave me a question about her child future. She passed away right before my eyes. And my tears flew when I heard the cried of her mother( the only person whom took care of her while she was as hospitalized) and her seven years old son( also accompanied his mother and grand mother in hospital). That situation inspire me to empower PLHIV.
