NANNING, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- While celebrating her 16th birthday earlier this year, He Xuejing, an orphan born with HIV, made a wish. She wanted to study at college.
He is on the way to realizing her dream. She has returned to primary school in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region with help from AIDS Care China, an American-funded non-governmental organization (NGO) dedicated to helping HIV/AIDS sufferers.
In 2011, He was diagnosed with HIV, which she transmitted from her mother before birth. As a result, He dropped out of school to save money for her treatment.
