Meet Milly

This is Milly. She’s 9 years old, likes to eat powdered sugar, and absolutely adores Margret. Milly was born with HIV and lost both her parents to AIDS. She is currently living with a caretaker from her village but is unfortunately a low priority as the caretaker has a number of her own children she has to provide for. Milly has been very sick for a long time but about 4 months ago she was enrolled as a patient in the Anti-Retroviral Research for Watoto (ARROW) clinical trial. Milly is much healthier these days, but she is going to have a very tough life.
