Lowest of the lowest
As an HIV-infected prisoner in Thailand you are lowest of the lowest. The living conditions of a prisoner are very bad. There is little to no moral support. We visit them because we believe God loves everyone. We offer moral support, sometimes just by being a listening ear. We also inform them about their rights as prisoner. We inform them about HIV/Aids, because many of them discover their infection in prison, or get infected in prison.
At the inmates’ request, we sometimes get in touch with prisoners’ families and facilitate a visit. Siam-Care is the only NGO working in the prison hospital.
