This is 12 year old Miracle.
She lives with her grandmother in Southwest Uganda. Sadly her parents both died of HIV and since then her grandmother has looked after her and sells at the local market earning “just enough” to pay the rent on her hillside home above the border town.
Although HIV Positive, the health of Miracle is really rather good. Thanks to a funding program from USAID and the tireless work of a Ugandan NGO, she receives regular medication to manage her health.
She told me she wants to be a doctor.
