Positive Living

Jenifah Owilo currently am stating in Kisumu district but am always happy about my life. I'm HIV affected person. I thought my life was over when I got the news that I was HIV +, my parents didnt accept me to there home. I was so much affected but I had a friend who helped me so much. He introduced me to a group called KENWA. They took me in & gave me tips to live with the disease and also treated me by undergoing check ups on a daily basis, by giving me ARVs . I am so encouraged, currently, I've employed in a firm in town (Kisusmu) and am helping people who are in the same position I was.
