Margaret Tulyatunga aged 32 years is living with her three children who lost their father in 2011 of HIV/AIDS. RACOBAO with the support from Global Giving supported Margaret with maize flour which helped her to improve her health (life) by taking porridge as food.
Margaret said, ‘‘by the time I got the maize flour it was time of hunger and I had nothing to eat neither drink and I was on ARV’s (Anti Retrovirals) treatment and the same time pregnant. Because the husband had just died who was a bread winner for the family and this was a challenging life to me. RACOBAO gave me maize flour which I used as food and I was able to gain the strength to do my usual home activities and grow food for the family and able to attend antenatal services until delivery of my baby." Such poor mothers end up losing hope and stop ART treatment because they lack what to eat.
Margaret appeals to RACOBAO to continue supporting the vulnerable People Living with HIV with food because this can improve their life and make such people to regain the strength to continue growing food on their own and live a normal life despite them living with the HIV virus.
