Celia

Celia is the “chief” in the house.  She is also in charge of handling any clothes that are donated or sold at clothing sales. “I’ve been here from the beginning, mostly because of my adopted daughter, Angela, who has HIV. I give thanks to God that there are people who send their blessings – because they are blessings, not donations – so that we can have that which is so important: food, medicine, clothes – everything. I want to especially thank those that are helping contribute toward my daughter’s upcoming surgery. Because of the neglect of her biological mother, she did not receive the nutrition that she needed and her legs did not develop correctly. I’m so thankful for the love that Angela gets here, and for the love that all those with HIV receive, because that is what they need more than anything. Everything that we get with the donations is important, not one thing more than another. But, what matters the most is that it is coming with love. We can say “you are my brother, it doesn’t matter that you have HIV.”
