Jian Thought There Was No Hope. Then He Found Ribbon Ministry

Everything was fine until Jian got his diagnosis.

In China, AIDS is not simply a disease that, though unfortunate, can be managed through careful treatment. In China, AIDS is a life sentence; it tears people from their families, their homes and makes them outcasts in their own communities.

Rubber Gloves
When Jian was diagnosed with AIDS, his family made him wear gloves and a mask at all times

Before the diagnosis, Jian was not unlike many other Chinese men in his community: young, happy and hopeful. In an instant, everything in his life was turned upside down. When he was diagnosed with AIDS, Jian’s family immediately quarantined him to one tiny room of the house. He was required to wear a mask and gloves at all times. Worst of all, he was only allowed to speak to his children through a curtain.

Hurt by his family’s behaviour, Jian became very angry and resentful. His family was not malicious. They, like many other Chinese families, simply did not understand how the disease spread. They were living in fear that everyone in the house would become infected. AIDS was slowly tearing apart Jian’s family, causing many fights and making Jian even more bitter.

With nowhere else to turn, Jian sought the help of Ribbon Ministry. With their help, Jian’s life was completely transformed. He and his family received counseling and were educated about the misconceptions of HIV/AIDS. Now Jian is once again living happily with his family. They are grateful for the love that the workers of Ribbon ministry have shown to them, and their hearts are open to the love of God.

建認為生活再沒有希望,後來他找到了『紅絲帶』

建一直都很好,直到被診斷出感染了艾滋病。

在中國,艾滋病不單單是一種疾病。因為雖然不幸被感染,還可以通过細心的治療而受到控制。然而在中国,艾滋病就像是終身監禁,使病人與他們的家人分隔,更將他們變成社區中被排斥,被遺棄的一群。

在診斷前,建就和社區裡的其他的男仕一樣: 年輕,快樂,充滿了希望。但在一瞬間,他的生活卻發生了天翻地覆的轉變。當建被診斷出感染了艾滋病後,他的家人立即把他隔離在一個小房間內。他被要求整天戴上口罩和手套,更糟糕的是,他只被允許通過窗簾來與他的孩子說話。

建因家人對他隔離變得很生氣,心中充滿了怨恨。其實,他的家人並沒有惡意傷害他,他們只是像許多其他在中國的家庭一樣,根本不明白艾滋病是怎樣傳播。他們生活在恐懼中,害怕所有家人都會被感染。艾滋病慢慢的破壞了健的家庭,家人經常吵架,建變得更加痛苦。

在走投無路時,建尋求了『紅絲帶』的幫助。在『紅絲帶』的幫助下,健的家庭生活被完全的改善,他和他的家人接受了輔導,明白了他們對艾滋病的誤解。現在,健再次幸福地與他的家人一起生活。他們十分感激『紅絲帶』同工為他們所付出的關愛,並且他們的心對神的愛也開放了。
