Halima is 7 years old and has four siblings. Her mother is a patient of KHC and her father abandoned the family as he refused to take a test for HIV. He assumed that a mother who was HIV would give birth to a positive child and he could not take care of that child whom he believed would die very soon.
The family is struggling to make ends meet and so Halima cannot go to school as there is no money for the school fees. She is a bright little girl who could benefit enormously if given the opportunity to go to school.
