Charles, only thirteen years old, has had to grow up very quickly.
Last year, his mother discovered that she had HIV. She was pregnant with Charles’s baby sister, Kaseo, at the time. Shortly after she had the baby, Charles’s mother caught TB. Her body was unable to fight the infection and she died.
Kaseo has recently been tested for HIV. Thankfully, her result was negative.
