The HIV/AIDS pandemic is into its third decade. Over 3 million people in India are currently infected with HIV. According to Health Ministry of India nearly 70000 children living with HIV/AIDS. 70% of the children lose the parents to the disease. These children not only have to live without love and support of a parent but they have to find their ownway through uncertainity. There may not be a cure for AIDS yet, but we still have the power to help rewrite the future of thousands of children in India.

Master Paulraj

Master Paulraj, 12yrs and weight 14kgs was given admission at DESIE Institutional Care Home (ICH) in Nov, 2012. The boy lost both the parents due to AIDS and unfortunately he is also suffering with HIV. He was literally underweight and had opportunistic infections (OIs) because of low immunity.

Prior to DESIRE, Paulraj has never been to school and used to pick his food from streets as his uncle's family is reluctant to support this boy. At DESIRE he was enrolled for education. DESIRE Society took special care for his psychological and physical needs and helped him by providing medical treatment and special nutrition.

Now, the boy has gained weight up to 22kgs with a stable health. He is able to attend school regularly and playing with inmates actively. We at DESIRE Society is committed to provide our best to save this boy and giving a hope of future with a quality and dignity.
