The story of Floyd

“When I was six years old, I suffered from tuberculosis. When I walked, I would fall down after every two steps. I was seriously malnourished; my stomach was also completely bloated because of the TB. I was born with HIV. My parents both died of AIDS. After their death I was brought to other members of my family, but nobody wanted to take care of me. They shunned me because I was covered with stinking sores and wounds. I was also mistreated. Fortunately, I ended up in the Transit Home. I became healthy again. They gave me TB medication and AIDS inhibitors. They made sure I finished my treatment. I felt good and happy again.”
