“I found out I was HIV-positive after giving birth to my sixth child. He became sick, and was found to have Tuberculosis (TB). He also tested positive for HIV.
This led to my husband, who had been sick for a while, also being tested. He, too, was diagnosed with HIV and TB. Due to lack of treatment, I lost them both.
My life was turned upside down. I faced a lot of stigma in my community. I lost my source of income.
What kept me going was volunteering at an HIV Support Group at my clinic, helping people to accept their status.
When mothers2mothers opened a programme in Ghana in 2019, I was overjoyed to be employed as a Team Lead. Finally, after working unpaid for nine years, I was recognised and paid for my work.
Today, I no longer face stigma, my efforts are recognised by my community, and I go to work every day with pride.”
