Visiting The Russ Foundation - Karen's Visit

Several of our boys came to us through the Russ Foundation, an organisation that works with families affected by HIV.  Israel and I visited their children's and sex worker's programs and I was so impressed by the wonderful work they are doing and the respect and compassion they show to HIV sufferers.  They've offered to give us ongoing support and advice and invited our staff to attend some of their staff training days.  During my visit we participated in their TB (tuberculosis) training day.  It was quite eye opening to learn how widespread TB is in our part of India.

The children's program included drama, a magic show and some teaching

Street workers were given advise on how to reduce the risk of HIV
