I am a man of 67 years of age, HIV positive for more than 40 years now, i lost my first wife due to AIDS and
i was very ignorant about it that was in 1996. After my family discovered my HIV status i was rejected including my biological children, thrown out of my house and i started sleeping in UNZA grounds on the bank of Goma Lake at UNZA. In 1997 March, a good samaritan woman by her real of Ivy Mulashikwanda heard of my situation she came to my rescue. She took me to her home in Kabulonga near State House but again her children refused to accept me, all what she did is to with stand the pressure of her children and kept me in a chicken ran for 7 years with good support of food in the process i become part of her family and her all her family and children accepted me. In 2003 i joined a group HIV+ women in solidarity oftheir fellow woman because it happenned to me also and form up Circles of Hope Community Support Group for PLHIV/ADS.
