In my daily work as an Accountant at Catholic Charities AIDS Services, I do not to serve or meet the clients who have HIV. However, I do see the amount of hard work performed and commitment that our staff has to their clients. They deal with clients’ success and hardships. I respect them immensely for the work they do on a daily basis and the relationships they develop with their clients.
I often come across articles or poems that are related to HIV and AIDS. This one in particular was very interesting to me and I would like to share it with you.
