“One day I will be a doctor and I will be providing medical attention to children who are like me”. This are the words of Gloria Chepkorir a 16 year old girl born with spina bifida, a type of birth defect where there is incomplete closing of the backbone and membranes around the spinal cord. This has left her glued to a wheel chair and also stagnated her growth. Despite all this, she has not lost hope in life and she is counting each day of her life as a blessing.

Living positively

Suleiman Kinarwa is the first born child in a family of three. He was raised up by his mother, a life he remembers all too well due to the multiple struggles they had to go through!

“My mother went through lots of struggles to raise my sister and I but we somehow made it through. My biggest personal struggle only began in 2013 when I found out I was HIV Positive,” Suleiman reveals.

Although his test results shocked him, he admits that he had seen signs before but hadn’t been keen to make sense of them.

Word from ED

 “The world marked the Worlds AIDS Day on 1st December, 2016. This day is dedicated to raising awareness of the disease caused by the spread of HIV. Since it was launched, a tremendous amount of progress has been made in reducing the stigma still faced by many, and the number of people dying from Aids-related illnesses since the first cases were reported.
