“We cannot change or correct anything that has happened in the past, but we can choose to walk in dignity.” Thammarat, age 32
What follows are all true stories told by members our slum community who are living with HIV/AIDS. They tell us they were shocked when they learned they tested positive. They thought HIV was a death sentence and the end of any hope of joy or dignity in their young lives. Yet, without exception, both the adults and children who speak out below have found a positive path to follow their dreams. They love their family, support their neighbors, care for others afflicted, and teach and counsel those at high risk of infection.
They lead positive and fulfilling lives.
Please hear their voices.
