Veliswa's story



Name: Veliswa


I live in a shack with 4 generations. My mother, two children and grandchildren. I am the sole earner. My first boyfriend told me that if I give him a child he would pay for me to continue studying. Unfortunately this didn’t happen. It was only later when I met Ann Price, she sent me to school, and I became a teacher. Unfortunately now, with this pandemic, my school is closed, and I have no job.


I grew up with poverty and pride. My mother told me to always tell the truth and to never judge others.


I have strong faith and I go to church.


I am HIV-positive and suffer from asthma. This pandemic has been very frightening.


My wish is have my own house with its own inside bathroom.
