Awareness For Cure.

Map of Awareness for cure. HIV/AIDS patients in many community are too difficult in accepting their status.A woman and her husband died of ignorance just because they did not believe in HIV/AIDS.They also did not believe in the Antiretrovirals administered to people.Once the disease is infected to someone,he/she gives up in life and only sees death ahead of them.Accepting your status is something I have tried to advice my people so that they can be free but it has been a difficult task.Another woman who had been diagnosed with the disease agreed to take the ARV's but reached at a point when she gave up and decided to throw all her drugs in a latrine and said that she wanted to wait for her death.''Others not believing AIDS has no cure go for diviness and local healers who advice them to neglect their drugs later succumbing to death because of their stupidity.These people used to be forced to know their status and start immediate medication if needed.

Hope May Be Obstructed But Never Fully Be Quenched.

By a female, under 16 years old, in Kakamega Central, Kenya
Map of HOPE MAY BE OBSTRUCTED BUT NEVER FULLY BE QUENCHED. Circumstances where one is found to be deprived of both one's parents is like a life sentence.i do not even know or understand why it happens like so.Experience has confirmed to me that it is abnormal for this to happen. It is even worse,traumatizing but when one is helped to overcome it so much the better. In 2006 i lost both my parents before about one million problems became my daily companions.It was only when Hope in Zion,thanks for that name,came to rescue me that a new chapter opened up in my life.They have became my true parents in as far as providing basic needs and everything else is concerned.I have hope to realize the dream of my life.
