Food parcels, Patients

…trying to kill himself…

hbc3In the picture is our 37-year male client at Swalala with a HBC nurse checking treatment. he’s not drinking well his treatment because he doesn’t have food to eat. He was trying to kill himself because he believed that his wife was the one that gave him the disease of HIV-positive. He was not adhering to the treatment, but he used traditional herbs and he is smoking. He is not working. We gave him a food parcel and we advised him to stop smoking, not to use the traditional herbs and he must look for job in the neighbourhood. We referred him to the clinic for counselling.
