the RED badges of courage 007

During class break at the Nzasa Primary School Salihiseifi, a nine year old HIV+ recent orphan sits silently apart from his other classmates. He suffers from constant headaches and what he describes as a fainting sickness which makes him feel weak. The red badge epaulette has been sewn prominently onto the shoulder of his uniform to alert teachers of his status.
