Nasérgia Artur, 30, is a single mother who lives with her five children in Chiure village, in Cabo Delgado Province.
She works as a Mentor Mother for mothers2mothers (m2m) at the Chiure District Hospital. Her passion for helping others stems from her own personal experience. In 2009, pregnant with her first child, Nasérgia tested positive for HIV.
“When I found out that I was living with HIV, I felt sad. I went home to speak to my mother who encouraged me to go back to the clinic and start treatment immediately. I stayed on treatment through all my pregnancies, and gave birth to healthy, HIV-free babies.”
“I began volunteering at the Chiure District Hospital in 2017, and completed the Mentor Mother training conducted by m2m last year. I joined the team full-time this year. I feel happy when other women can feel inspired—when listening to my own experience—to take the steps needed to make better lifestyle choices for themselves and their families.”
