The woman took to social media to boldly declare her status and tell people how she is coping with the virus...
Morachaa from Kenya revealed that she was born HIV positive to discordant parents (her father is negative but the mother is positive and are still living together).
She further revealed that three of her siblings do not have the virus, she and her little brother who has since died were born positive.
She revealed that doctors had told her parents that she had only four years to live when she was first diagnosed at eight years.
But 18 years later, Moracha who celebrated her birthday on August 8 said: she is ”still here going strong dealing with self-stigma, societal stigma, discrimination and rejection but still standing strong.”
“People say I make HIV look easy but it is easy I am not ready to give a small virus power over my life I accepted my status and every day I declare that I am greater than HIV."
