Outside a clinic in Macia, Mozambique, Jorge Mabasso holds his grandson Dinis Manuel Cumbene, who is living with HIV. “The boy is my grandson. I come with him here to collect his medicines. I am not sure about the distance. What I know is that I have to walk more than two hours from home. Sometimes I have to carry my grandson. But while I breathe, I will do it. My dream is to see the boy grow and play with other children. I thank everyone who is so supportive, particularly EGPAF because I know that this Foundation is supporting the health system in Gaza province (in Mozambique).”
