child victim of hiv

The hum of radio sets and the murmur of conversation, the odour of sewage and cooking rice all seeped through the thin walls of the dilapidated hallway.An ageing Kazakh woman in a colourful headscarf put a finger to her wrinkled mouth, signalling us to be quiet, as she led us up stairs to her biggest secret. The secret was a baby boy, fast asleep on a cheap mattress in a shabby room. His chubby face looked healthy, peaceful and happily oblivious to the poverty and tragedy around him. Sayat is 18 months old and he is HIV positive. aren't this think rally sad? what do you think? discuss

This is so sad to hear that this baby is isck. Did they say how the baby got the virus? Is he receiving medication and treatment?
