Adoption for Medical Treatment of HIV Positive Children
There are more than 100 HIV positive children from age 1 year to 18 under care of LMF. Many of them are physically weak and have various health issues. Some of them are orphans or have a single parent and are taken care by grandparents or aunts and uncles.
LMF undertakes monthly medical check-up, conducts necessary investigations, and provides indoor treatment (if needed) and all medical and nutritional supplements to these children totally free of charge. In addition travel allowance is given to the care taker to bring them to the Care Centre every month for medical check-up. 100 children were covered by the scheme in 2018-19.
Currently Bitwise Foundation, Pune is funding the Child Adoption project.
