Lillian had a dream to be a Community Health Worker and help those with HIV/AIDS. She had completed high school and was working for a small wage at Pandapiere Catholic Center when I first met her in 2003.
FIOH-USA found a sponsor for Lillian and she attended college. The yearly sponsor fee was not enough to cover the cost so Lillian was resourceful and while continuing to work saved the fees from her sponsor for two years until she had enough to complete the course.
She has graduated and is now a community health worker and the supervisor in charge of the HIV/AIDS program. She is married to her wonderful husband Issac and had three beautiful children, Brandy, Ray and John (not pictured). Sadly Brandy (pictured left) died in September 2013 at age 10 due to complications from Sickle Cell disease. Life continues to be a struggle for Lillian and her family but their opportunities are much greater since receiving assistance through FIOH-USA.
