An 8-year-old has stolen hearts as he bid farewell to his friends from the Hillcrest AIDS Centre after a month in their care.
The Respite Unit team recently bid farewell to another of their patients, 8 year-old Michael* (name changed) who spent the past month the team's care. When he first arrived at the Centre, Michael was very sick and severely underweight weighing just 15kg.
But he bounced back quickly gaining a third of his body weight in just under 4 weeks. The shy little boy stole many hearts during his relatively short stay at the care Centre.
The facility took to Facebook to bid farewell to their special little friend. Mzansi social media users also chipped in to thank the Hillcrest AIDS Centre for their service.
Linda Locke said:
"Gentle little boy. He helped handing out Bibles to the other patients"
While Terry Wood said:
"You do such amazing work. I will never forget our wonderful visit with SLF. God Bless you"
Wendi Tiedt said:
"Your unconditional love and care is so precious"
