NEW LIFE CENTRE CASE STUDY
At 10 months of age, Bishnu Raidash* lost his mother to AIDS and was also diagnosed with the disease. He arrived at our NLC severely undernourished, suffering from hepatitis, tuberculosis, and a urinary tract infection. Wounds covered his body. A 45-day course of treatment cured Bishnu’s infections and returned his weight to normal. He left the centre much healthier and more prepared to fight the issues he faces living with AIDS.
