The following is an interview with a 12-year-old orphan due to HIV/AIDS in Kenya. He is learning to live and cope with life in an HIV/AIDS environment. He participates in HEKO (Heritage Kenya Organization) programs.
Question: What was your life like before this project?
Response: My mum used not to balance our meals well. We knew
nothing about health education and the meaning of exercise.
Question: What has your life been like since being part of this project?
Response: There is now a great change in our lives since mum is cooking a well balanced diet despite challenges in putting food on the table due to irregular income.
Question: What is your family situation?
Response: It has improved because of our mum’s effort to take care of my brother and I. We all attend and participate in HEKO programs. We need educational support.
Question: What has been your happiest moment since being part of this project?
Response: How to balance the meals from breakfast to supper and when we all participate as a family in HEKO programs and activities especially sports.
Question: What have you personally changed since being part of this project?
Response: My health has changed. Nutritionally, I feel strong and invigorated due to regular intake of balanced food prepared by mum who sometimes brings home food items from HEKO.
Question: What is something you would like the donors to know about you or the project or tell them in general?
Response: Continue with nutrition and health programs. Encourage mothers, particularly those who participate in HEKO programs, to come if possible with their children
