I'm working at "LENTERA ANAK PELANGI" we've founding by UNDP and the name of project is :
"MITIGATION HIV AND AIDS EFFECT ON CHILDREN WHO BORN FROM INJECTION DRUG USER PARENTS THAT LIVING WITH HIV AIDS "
we try to reach children that of course still very young ( 0-12 years old ) in Jakarta who had born from PLWHA eventough they follow infected from their parents or not..
FYI, there is no organization yet that really focus on them..
as we all know..that parents who use drugs maybe haven't much time to teach and grow up their children as normally.
and even tough they've already quit from their addiction but we can't close our eyes that HIV AIDS does effected to their children such as bad nutrition, bad education, psychosocial problems, and of course the advocacy team to "kick" the stake holder...
Last 2 weeks ago we had camping with 10 children ( 3-8 years old ) that they all infected from their mom..
What the really bad problems..they all do consumption ARV for keeping their immune system on their body..
At our 3 days camping, we gave them and include their mom and care giver ( there is 2 of children had already have no parents because already died by AIDS ) an education, information, run FGD and also gave the children lot of Games that supported their life!
what the great project!! hope we can run this project well and this project can cover the children need...
I do feel thanks to God That I've infected on my 27 years old where I've already understand for this problem..
Feel very sad to meet children who still young and not yet understand about this epidemic and also not guilty but they all fighting, struggling with their virus...
All the children do make me more stronger!!
For anyone who had reference info contact person PLWHA that have children and live in Jakarta, Indonesia please feel free to contact us!
