Our partner the Diocese of Marsabit many of this group close to death - abandoned by their community because they are HIV positive. With the diocese's help, they are now stronger, and have been given boats and fishing nets to earn a living. A real success story.

HIV+ fishermen work Lake Turkana in Kenya

  1. 1. "I'm HIV positive. I was very ill but, with sisters help, I've gained 15kg. I'm still very weak so I'm in charge of drying the fish. I'm so happy to be earning a living again." Lora, northern Kenya “Being positive does not mean not being able to work. This group are so succesful they are employing others, who suddenly look up to them - despite them being HIV positive - so stigma is going down. It’s a real success." Sister Maria Antonia, Diocese of Marsabit
