Give the gift of hope and empowerment in honour of International Women's Day
"HIV and I came to terms a long time ago and now we work together to care for the body we share" says Maria, a single mother and fierce woman living with HIV.
Maria learned she was HIV-positive while in the process of moving to Canada from Zimbabwe to build a better life for herself and her children. Learning she was HIV-positive while beginning her new life in Canada was devastating, sending Maria into a multi-year depression she thought she would never escape. Once she found ACT's women's support programming she discovered a community that empowers women to be fearless and Maria began to recognise she too can lead a happier and healthier life.
