Children never stay very long at Amecet. We believe that children should live at home with their family clan. Our job is to bring them back home.
After the children return to their family, we will visit them to see how they are doing. We also want to encourage the family and sometimes help mediate their conflicts.
The villages are usually far from civilization. People there have no transportation or electricity. Even though the quality of life is poor, people are perfectly capable of providing for their child. Because they have little to spend, they tend not to give children their medicines. For children who are HIV+ it is very important to educate their families how and when to take these medicines. If we see that they have not taken their medicine, we can intervene.
