I’m working on a few stories here in Haiti. I have met this girl a few times while working at an orphanage where she lives. 18 years old Mirleine Derolus has been at this orphanage since she was four years old. Her father died in Aids when Mirleine was young, her mother is infected as well and is getting sicker by the day. Mirleines young sister used to stay in the same orphanage but when it was discovered that she also is HIV-positiv she was taken care off in a special clinic.
Mirleine is currently in 10th grade at school and she hopes to finish secondary school within a few years.
