Summer camp brings hope to children with HIV (4)

By Shan Juan (China Daily)

In the documentary, Gao, then 5 years old, who lost both parents to AIDS, was rejected by his unmarried uncle, who was healthy, and sent to a local welfare home.

Zhang Ying, who heads the Fuyang AIDS Orphan Salvation Association and the welfare institution, said that the only words Gao uttered at the time were "hit you".

The association, founded by Zhang in 2003, has so far provided support to more than 500 children with HIV/AIDS.

When the children start attending public schools, HIV/AIDS awareness activities are usually held at the school and most of the faculty and classmates are friendly.

Twelve-year-old Mengting, a patient who is also from Fuyang, said she had never heard of Disneyland before.

"I must be the very first person who has been to Disneyland in my whole village," said Mengting, who has a very pointy chin due to fat loss, a major side effect of the drug D4T.

The only person with the disease in her family, Mengting became HIV-positive after being fed with infected breast milk.
