Flying high to save children from HIV in Malawi

By Ricardo Pires

She hopes that today she will finally get the good news for which she’s been desperately dreaming.

For almost two months, Melina has been waiting to get the result of her baby’s HIV test. She is tired from the commute but even more exhausted in her heart and mind.
