I met a girl and fell in love in 2009. After 6 months she fell pregnant and I was overjoyed. During the pregnancy I was informed that my girl had HIV and I should be tested. I was diagnosed HIV positive 3 months later. I chose to stay with my girl because we were having my first child and that child had done no wrong.
When the child was born, he was not mine. He was very dark skinned and she admitted that she had basically done this to keep me around. I was crushed but again in my heart I knew this little child did not deserve to be abandoned. I stayed and vowed to be his father in every way I could.
These last years have been very hard mentally and physically and I can no longer work in 'proper'schools as I have such bad skin complaints and the staff and students don't like the way it looks.
I found huge solace in the fact that I can teach online where my HIV doesn't matter. These days after all sorts of financial issues I am really in need of computer equipment to get back to work.
I WANT TO WORK FOR MY KIDS!
We have arrears in our rent, I owe lots of friends money and everything is just piling up in front of me.
If I can raise money to get the right equipment, then I can soon make enough money to sustain us all and make life better for my kids. I have 3 kids now and they deserve a better life than this current one.
Asking for help is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. We need this help and you will change the lives of 5 people with any donation at all.
Thank you for taking the time to hear this story.
