People living with HIV (PLHIV) often have to endure a life characterized by discrimination, victimization and apathy. They never quite feel at home – within their own city, community and sometimes, even in their own homes. Indeed, PLHIV seldom get to feel the warmth and touch that most of us take for granted. Ignorance about their condition divides people and then fear and shame drives them further apart. 

Often abandoned by their families and loved ones they  fight multiple battles alone –against their state of health, against their own doubts and fears, and against apathy and discrimination around them. These families need your understanding, your courage to stand up with them and your support, to feel at home.

 Today is a chance to give something back to the community and make a difference. Positive People cater to the needs of 100 families affected by HIV in Goa through a comprehensive community based care and support. Make a donation today and support the efforts of Positive People.
