Girl, 3 1/2 years old
Mercyline is HIV+ as is her mother. Her father died of AIDS. Mercyline and her mother live with her 5 siblings in Magarini Hill Village. Her mother sells old clothes and tends a small garden when she is physically able. She is very careful of Mercyline’s medical needs. Mercyline’s oldest brother dropped out of school to try to help the family but they are still in great need. The family is in need of food, school fees and other basic needs. Mercyline would like to attend nursery school when they have enough money for the fees and a uniform.
