Hiv/aids Is Like Another Disease

Suffering from HIV/AID, is not the end of the world.if your are positive,you should also live positive. I came to understand suffering from HIV/AIDS is just like other diseases like malaria.It only depends with your attitude towards the issue you are facing. EDDO is one of the organization that has touched lives by completely ensuring i live a good and comfortable life. The organization has been able to provide medication for me and has been a blessing and the way of living with the right attitude. I have been able to also help my friends with the same situation like mine through EDDO and they have been able to make it.
