Enter, the Russ Foundation.
The Russ Foundation runs an outreach programme which works to support female sex workers. Russ provides; free medical checks, condoms, counselling, and a drop-in centre where sex workers can meet and share their problems. Lucy’s mother was a part of this.
Eventually, because of HIV, her health deteriorated and she felt that she would not live for very long. She approached the Russ Foundation, asking whether the outreach workers could take care of Lucy, as she didn’t want to leave her in the hands of her nasty partner.
The outreach workers asked Berlin if this was possible and, of course, he said yes.
