Mary Atieno shares a modest home with her three children. Angel (age 12), Blessing (age 3) and Gaelic (age 4 months). This family resides in a single-roomed iron sheet house that costs about $26/month and unfortunately, experiences flooding during rains. Mary ardently prays for a more conducive environment to nurture her children.
Despite facing challenges, Mary, who is HIV-positive, exemplifies unwavering determination and hard work. To sustain her family, she washes clothing for others. However, this does not provide enough to feed her family and keep them in school. Mary remains optimistic, hopeful that the future holds better prospects for her and her children. She attends church faithfully and dreams of starting her own clothing business one day.
