Home for Orphans With HIV to Close in Nepal
Ten HIV-positive children ages 3 to 10 from the Saphalta HIV Shiksya Sadan School in Nepal face an uncertain future after the sale of their building, The Associated Press reports. They must be out of the building by the end of October. Raj Kumar Pun, a 30-year-old high school teacher, had to sell the building, which was originally his own home.

Pun claims HIV discrimination has prevented him from renting a new building.
