Comfort Of Strangers

An inspiring story of Sanna Leshage, a home based care volunteer who without payment, transport or any logistical support looks after people living with HIV and AIDS.

Leshage doesn’€™t stop at doing home visits, she also helps her clients organise grants, where possible. But just because patients are sick, they’re not always regarded as disabled, and grants aren’€™t always available. This leaves her reaching into her kitchen cupboard for porridge and other food to make sure that they don’€™t take their medication on an empty stomach.
