Responding Hajiya Aisha usman , The leader of muslim women living with HIV/Aids in kaduna says, this year Ramadan is really tough for them due to lack of foodstuff to eat at home.
she noted that, another challenge was that most of the HIV/Aids women are widows with orphans, living in rented houses
She said Most of their childrens are malnourished due to lack of good food to eat at home
Aisha expressed sadness that stigmatisation was still a problem in the society, as they cannot express their freedom like every other citizen in the country
“People reject buying any product from us ,once they find out that it was produced by a person living with Aids.”
