Hiv Aids

My name is Ruth. I'am a counseller. I'am working with Aphia 11 as a volunteer. Thank God because through this experience with Appia 11 western I have gotten a job with WEWASAFO and this is an N.G.O in town doing a set of activities. The problem I have been having is how to help my fellow youth. but wewasafo have supported me to serve clients in the community. I met Peter whom I helped and now Peter is very healthy. I met Peter when he was bed ridden. After doing counselling he accepted to be reffered to counselling and testing. This is the time Peter was tested positive. the parents had lost hope in Peter, but after encouraging peter she is on ARV'S and doing well. he has gained wait and strong.
