March 2012 - Case History - Emmanuel Mulema
This boy is 11 years old. He was admitted to ACHERU on 30th November 2011 from Kiwoko town where he was staying with a Good Samaritan who works with TASO (The Aids Support Organisation) Kiwoko who picked him from the village to get medical treatment. Sam Mutumba always encouraged them to bring the child for rehabilitation but it was a challenge until they hired people to look after him at ACHERU.
