Living Positively: A Journey with HIV

By Joshua Chishala | AIDSLink Director

I came to Kathmandu for my husband's treatment. At that time Aidslink staff met us and we were invited to join them. My husband passed away during treatment. I was so struggling to provide for 3 children.

The community was not nice with me because I was a widow. People in the community still had conservative mind set. After my husband passed away I looked work, but it was hard to get a job of any kind. I did not find any kind or friendly people. One day Aidslink staff came to my house. Who I had met at the hospital when he came to visit my husband. At that time my family members were not treating us well. He saw my situation and started to help with my two daughter's education.

Something felt different every time AIDSLink staff would visit me and my family. That gave me joy and peace in my life. The team started to come into my house with an office truck. My relatives’ eyes were changed to look toward me. A few years later I got the opportunity to serve people living with HIV and AIDS as I became Aidslink staff. It has already been over 6 years. I’ve had the opportunity to serve many more PLWHA to live in a positive life. I am now helping through the hospital service, being part of the ART department. I went home to visit and encourage people living with HIV.

I want to say thank you for the education of my daughters. Today my eldest daughter is studying for her Bachelor’s degree and my youngest daughter is in grade 12. I really appreciate your support and encouragement to push me to live longer! I am always thankful for AIDSLink support.
