Poster: Night visits by people united to save humanity against hiv/aids (pusha)

Sam Masina

Objectives and Scope

PUSHA feels that conducting Night Visits for chronically/terminally ill patients is one of the backbones in caring and supporting people with HIV/AIDS and the affected families.  Night visits from experience seem to be very important and therefore becomes part of medication, for instance

Night visits brings home and region to accepting the status of the individual

Is also cost effective because it does not attract a lot of monetary needs

Night visits adds more days to the patient as he/she is reminded during the service song singing some of the things he/she used to do before the illness

It also brings love and peace amongst the relatives of the people and volunteers to an extent that the patient might die peacefully in the presence of the family

It also brings together people from all walks of life that get attracted because of the noble cause that the volunteers portray during these night visits.

Challenges

Despite all these vigorous night visits to the terminally ill patients, they are only spiritually healed but still physically weak because only life after death is tackled.

We still feel that the society out prayers because stigma relates to sickness of the individuals in the communities

Certain times the patients themselves feel like death is coming, there fore feels sorry for themselves

Strategy

The organisation is employing perseverance as the only natural remedy to get rid of persistent stigma and discrimination to the infected and affected families.
