Birma is one of the caretakers in our partner home, Rays, in Jaipur. Birma was diagnosed HIV positive after her husband died of AIDS – she moved to Jaipur from a small village in Rajasthan with her son (only a baby at the time) to get tested and receive medication.

Birma is one of the few people we’ve met who hasn’t been discriminated against or outcasted by her family for being HIV positive. Her story is an inspiring tale of strength, courage and support – this is what we want for all HIV positive people across India and the world!

Birma has asked to not show here face to protect her and her son’s identity.
