Throughout the day, I tried to communicate with the children with body language and my very very limited Thai language. I tried to ask them ‘What is your name?’ etc, but it wasn’t successful at all. But with the help of my Thai colleague, I was able to play for a few minutes with some of the children.
When I thought about the children who looked so normal were actually HIV carrier really made me sad. These are innocent children who have been brought to the world to suffer. All of these are caused by the irresponsible parents. But all the damage had been done. All we can do is to hope that scientists can discover cure for AIDS patients. But for now, the least we can do is to have a fun day with the children.
At least I saw some happy face at the aquarium. It made it all worthwhile.
