When Kamilla gave birth to her son, she discovered that he was HIV-positive. Her ex-husband died when their son, Sasha, was two years old, leaving them to cope with a stigmatized disease. A few years ago, they began attending a Kids Club for children living with HIV and AIDS at the Church of the Nazarene in their home country, Ukraine. There, they found a community who could support each other to live lives that aren’t controlled by a disease.
“So much has changed, and I hope that everything will be even better,” Kamilla says.
