Hope and future for HIV infected children.
This house offers HIV infected children a new home, security, love and a good medical care. By our visit there were 62 children cared for, who came mainly from orphanages.
Over an entry into our guest book (No. 1883) we were informed about the Sarnelli House in Nong Khai. A stay in Nong Khai was also planned on our travel route trough the Isaan and so we could connect it with a visit to the Sarnelli House.
We went there with mixed feelings, because we did not know what will expect us here. Would we will see illness and poor children with the symptoms of the HIV infect and how should we handle this.
But what we saw was simply great. All children were well and in a good health and romped completely unencumbered around. If you see that, you can not believed that children are so seriously ill. Because of the excellent medical care, which must be financed mainly by donation funds, it is possible that none of the children must die.
years ago, the last child was buried at the small cemetery.
We stayed here for few hours and came to the conclusion that everything is really done here for the children and the donation funds are in the best way invested.
