Kyalimpa 41 years a PLHIV sends her sincere thanks to all global giving funders for the help they received from them with her 5 children. Juliet had problems with her husband after both tested in 2012 and found both were HIV positive. The husband habits changed from that time as she narrates, Juliet’s husband decided to distract everything they owned with a belief that he would die in a short time, he refused to go back to health clinics and rejected counseling he was given instead to behave the way he wanted. The small they owned was distracted to buy basic needs, look after their health and also the husband sold a small piece of land they owned because he knew that soon he was dying.

The husband did not stop on that act he developed a negative attitude towards community to infect women and girls with HIV as a revenge by raping them. He was caught in act, seriously beaten by community members including her wife later he was taken to police now is a prisoner in high prison where Kyalimpa doesn’t know.

But with the help from GlobalGiving Kyalimpa’s life was revealed. Kyalimpa was given 3 goats, the 4 goats multiplied into siblings that later she was able to sell off some goats and met her family needs like buying food, meeting her medical bills and sustaining on ARVs and also opened up a small business selling tomatoes and bananas to improve her life.

Kyalimpa says, she is happy with the support from RACOBAO together with global giving fundraisers for being identified for this help.
