Ntombizanele Skote is 29 years old and lives in Khayelitsha in a bungalow that she shares with her husband and her 3 years old boy, who is HIV negative. She had her second child in June, 2006. Her family and friends know her status, as does her husband, who is negative.
Ntombizanele wanted to be in the project because "HIV is everywhere" and she wants everyone to know that. She also wants others to know that people with HIV can live just like HIV negative people
When my parents died some neighbors and family abandoned us, although some are still supportive, but it is different than before. Now, my family will say hello in the street, but they will not come into our home. I asked my Uncle, why doesn’t anyone visit us? Why won’t people visit?
