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.
