Kenyan woman Doreen Moraa, who is living with HIV has revealed that she was diagnosed with the virus 20 years ago.
The 28-year-old bold lady is never afraid of sharing her life journey with HIV/AIDs to encourage others living with the virus.
In a post that has moved many, Doreen narrated how her little brother succumbed to the virus because there was no treatment for it.
‘WHAT KEEPS ME GOING IN MY JOURNEY OF LIVING WITH HIV FOR 28 YEARS NOW? IT’S HOPE. WHEN I WAS DIAGNOSED, 20 YEARS AGO THERE WERE NO ARVS, THERE WAS ONLY HOPE. MY LITTLE BROTHER DIED AND SO DID MANY OTHER PEOPLE BECAUSE THERE WAS NO TREATMENT 15 YEARS LATER I’M ON TREATMENT, ARVS ARE GETTING BETTER AND THERE IS HOPE FOR AN HIV/AIDS-FREE WORLD AS LONG AS WE DON’T GIVE UP THE HOPE. HIV HAS CHANGED, TIMES HAVE CHANGED AND ONE DAY I’D LIKE TO SAY “I USED TO HAVE HIV” FOR NOW I’M KEEPING THAT HOPE ALIVE, TAKING MY ARVS AND STAYING BEAUTIFUL WHILE I’M AT IT.’
