Tusime Oliver is a 24-year-old mother with HIV.
“When I got married, I did not know my husband was sick. When I went to the hospital to give birth to my child, they took blood and found out I was HIV positive. My husband left me.
My child was so, so tiny that she couldn’t even swallow a bean. I was so sad, not knowing if my child would survive or be healthy. I went to the church and explained my problems. I was accepted into the Child Survival Program. They listened to me, and provided nutritious food to help me feed my baby.
Today my child can speak and she can walk. I am so thankful to the church that has given power, energy and light in me.”
