Heartbreaking story…

Bruce Patty Bauman Newsletters 2 Comments


We walked in the lobby to meet our dear friend who runs the AIDS orphanage here in Pune. Her face was grim & she looked as if she was about to cry. Fighting back tears she said one of the children in her home passed away today. This is the terrible heartbreaking tragedy of working with children who are HIV+. Most of the children in her home are children of prostitutes & end up with AIDS themselves. This amazing doctor has given her life to work in the red light district of Pune…caring for those that no one else will treat. As a result of her work in the red light district, she started an orphanage for kids who are HIV+. We will be at her AIDS home later this week with the team (the team flies in tonight). Even though we have helped them occasionally, we long to be able to support this home financially on a monthly basis. Please check back tomorrow for more on our journey of hope….

  1. This is very sad to hear. We were just with these kids a month ago and our whole team will be heartbroken… Please pass on our condolences to Dr. Edwards…
