Gabrielle was still a baby when her father died due to AIDS. Her mother nearly didnâ€™t make it either. Gabrielle was so malnourished that if APRECOM hadnâ€™t reached her in time, she would almost certainly have died too. APRECOMâ€™s team brought food to Gabrielleâ€™s mum, helping her to eat and encouraging her to take her medication, so she could care for her young child.
Today, Gabrielle has grown into a healthy eight-year-old who is â€˜full of hope and confidenceâ€™, according to APRECOMâ€™s project coordinator Odeth.
But Gabrielleâ€™s future is just as important as her past. Gabrielle is now a member of APRECOMâ€™s Inshuti Nziza Childrenâ€™s Club, and in time she will be invited to become part of the Inshuti Nziza Troop and join them in serving her community.
