Ask Me Anything about HIV/AIDs and also don't forget to donate the little you have to support my advocacy.
Greetings everyone, my name is Stephen from Uganda, East Africa. I dropped out of school 4 year solid years ago. I have an HIV back ground since my parents passed away because of HIV/AIDs since they were less informed about how to live positive. I lost my lovely caring mum in 2009. And when she got critically sick, taken to the hospital and died the very day she got diagnosed that she had HIV/AIDs. That same day doctors took my sample of blood and I too found out I was having the virus. Little did I know that my dad was a victim too. Making matters worse, he refused to take ART medication.
Unfortunately after about 5 year mum had died, dad followed that same path; meanwhile I sticked to adhering to my medication as my doctors and care takers had been advising me to.
I had to seek for information, got involved in all kinds of activities and forum discussions both online through social media and offline in peer health clubs. I found out living HIV positive isn't a much easier task for everyone especially here in Africa because of various challenges I had experienced; feeling stigmatized and discriminated was the story of day during my junior time at school.Fortunately, staying online helped me out after surfing and reading about stories and testimonies about various people living positively.
The more the information I acquired, the higher the inspiration I got to speak out about HIV. I am now doing HIV peer advocacy using my social media platforms. And also providing social media management services for NGOs combatting a next generation free from HIV voluntarily. However, I am experiencing one problem; my phone is broke down, supports less internet speed, has poor camera and low battery duration. I am finding social media blogging and influencing my passion however I have no enough resources. Okey all the resources wouldn't have been a problem if I got an android smart phone. I prefer a gadget costing atleast 200$. I will be glad and appreciate all the support you shall render towards my success as a social change maker in HIV advocacy.
I started a crowd funding campaign to help me collect those funds. Follow the link bit.ly/2D9EjH8 to donate the little you have got with you.Let us connect virtually via my Facebook here www.facebook.com/tugume.stephengerald Twiter handle @stephenT023.Email me on; email@example.com
