Diaper fashion and Max...

This week we received a box with all kind of "baby things" by mail. And there were really nice colored diapers in! So we maker a fashion show.... Are they not cute? ( I mean the diapers AND the baby's!)
Yesterday Elias, Janneke and me went to the village to visit Max. Last week they came to Amecet and we saw that Max was struggling, he was almost too weak to walk. He is HIV+ and on ARV medicines, but still very weak. We promised to visit the family in the village, to see and talk over with them how we could help Max. On this picture we are talking with the family who takes care of Max at the moment.
We took Max to Amecet, he was happy to come with us, because last week when they visited Amecet, he saw some cars to play with. Max is very weak and we took him this morning to the HIV clinic, half way he fell asleep!! He is 11 years old, both his parents died and also his grandmother who cared for him after the death of his mother, died of Aids. The doctor changed his ARV medicines into stronger medicines and he also needs to get now IV medication because of a bad lung infection. I feel for him and it is so good to see him smile. He will need a lot of care and love, but where a smile is........there is hope!!
