Read Precious’ Story
At 18 months old, Precious was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. Living with a chronically ill and desperately poor single mother, Precious was also severely malnourished.
When Precious' mom passed away, her uncle was moved to take care of her. However, he quickly found it financially impossible to keep up with her dietary needs that would save her life. He sought help from his local church.
Precious was quickly registered into Compassion's Child Survival Program. She was given a steady nutritional diet and her uncle's family was trained to grow crops and bake local snacks to bring new income into their home.
Today, Precious is 2 years and 7 months old. She walks, runs, plays, dances and laughs just like the other children her age. She is alive because of the faith of her uncle and the intervention of Compassion.
