AIDS has impacted me and my family directly. Both of my parents passed away from these disease. My older brother and I were left under the care of my uncle, who was young and used drugs. He was mean to us and we were often thrown out of his house at night to sleep outside. We were excited to come live at Mahiga in 2011. Then in July of 2013 my brother passed away from AIDS. I was so thankful for the support of my Mahiga family during this difficult time. I do not know how long I will live but I am hard working and proud to finish secondary school.
