This week, Angel Covers received the saddest news possible from Humble Hearts. One of the beautiful children of this school died. Little Ruth Muhonja has had HIV since birth. Ruth also lost her hearing after contracting meningitis and malaria as an infant. Unfortunately Ruth was never able to received treatment for the HIV and she was recently hospitalized, and died this week. We are so sad that Ruth had such a short time at Humble Hearts, but so grateful that she knew her sponsor loved her. She was a bright, active little girl who deserves to be more than another AIDS statistic. She was a daughter and friend. I met her once and will never forget her beautiful smile and loving way.
We will miss you Ruth. May you know peace.
