This afternoon we visited AINA, a HIV/AIDS children’s home. It was very inspiring to see how kids with a deadly disease can be so happy. Throughout the experience today and all of our other visits around Meru, it has been incredible as to how powerful our presence can be. Whenever we drive by someone, they have a big smile on their face and say hi to us. Also today walking around AINA, we were being followed by the children, and our presence likely made a lifelong memory. It was especially important for us to be there to help eliminate the HIV/AIDS stigma among society. Most of these kids don’t have anyone there to support them, so it makes it extra special for them when we are there to play with everyone. Even though there is a language barrier, there is still a connection between everyone we have met.
