“I am happy here” 12 year old girl Lin Pa Pa O said. It was heart wrenching for me to look at Lin Pa Pa O and convince myself that she has HIV. She along with her friends fidgets all day long inside the hospital. It’s not only the children the mothers, often both of the parents looks just as healthy as people without HIV. Many of the patience say that now they enjoy coming to this home. “When you got this disease, instead of losing hope, you should try to be a useful person in life at least by contributing with what you can” said San Myint Winn a 36 year old volunteer and patient who takes care of not only himself but also other patients: members of his newly found family. NLD HIV Prevention & Care hospital is the home for around 100 patients. In this space they share a sense of intimacy and love with each other which can be exemplary for the people who turn blind eye towards sexually transmitted diseases like HIV AIDS.
