MISSION CAPSULE: Sheila was just a few months old when her mother died and she went to live with her grandmother, Elube, in Malawi. Two years later, Sheila’s health began to sharply decline. Elube brought her granddaughter to the PWS&D supported Mulanje Mission Hospital where Sheila was diagnosed as HIV positive and acutely malnourished. Elube’s grief weighed a little less heavily when she learned that Sheila could receive treatment at a nearby orphan care centre,. Supported by PWS&D these centres provide vulnerable children with free medical care, school support and nutrition assistance. With a place to receive antiretroviral treatment and highly nutritious food, Sheila’s health is improving and Elube is better equipped to meet her granddaughter’s needs.
