My name is Atuhire Topista.
I am 30 years old, and I spent six years in prostitution because my father killed my mum because of family problems. I was one child and my father got married with another wife. His wife hated me very much. Then my father was a drunken man, so I continued living in a hard situation with my stepmother hating me.
I was sleeping outside so I ended up hating myself, which forced me to go in prostitution because I had a friend she was a prostitute, and I shared my situation with her. She told me that men are rich and they have money. When you go through having sex with them for sure I will get money to survive. When I reached there I started my job of having sex with many men,
Then I got aids. After getting aids then I lost hope. Seriously, I knew this was the end of my life!!! Even didnít know that there is Jesus Christ and I didnít know that there is hope. When I was there in the year of 2012 June, thatís when I met Diana. I shared my bad situation with her she told me good words of hope, which I never heard in my life. I knew that I am going to die of aids and my kids were eating food from the trash on the streets, but I thank God very very much and First Baptist Church because of sewing machines.
I sewing many clothes, bags and sell them to get money to take care of my kids. They no longer on the street. I have them now, and I know that there is hope. Thank you so much for encouraging us and praying for us, because I donít even remember that am HIV/aids. I have hope that God will heal me. The Lord who sent us Diana to bring hope and First Baptist Church which brought us sewing machines to have hope and future.
