Salam and Hi everyone! My name is Suraya and I’m trying to raise funds for the Malaysian Aids Foundation. I stand for self-empowerment. But I know sometimes, in certain circumstances or situations we find it hard to even have hope on anything. A dead end. We just feel trapped and stuck. No one in the world asks to be sick, we can ease their burden and give them a second chance to live a better life I would like to play my part to help by fundraising for the cause and at the same time share some knowledge in reducing the stigma. I would like to thank you all for helping, I believe giving is not just about donating - it's about making a difference.
A former nurse, Zahra found it tough to find a stable job to support her family due to her HIV status. She faced a lot of stigma and discrimination when applying for jobs, especially those that require her to do a HIV test. She also needs to go for frequent medical check-ups and follow-ups which caused a financial drain on her. However, due to stress and her deteriorating health, Zahra defaulted on her treatment regime and developed resistance to her first-line treatment. As a result, she now needs second-line treatment which is not provided free at government hospitals. The medications cost her up to RM500 a month.
Zahra was delighted when she qualified for the MyLady Assistance Scheme run by the Malaysian AIDS Foundation. The programme gives her the opportunity to expand her family’s business by equipping her with vocational skills and financial aid. She has set her sights on opening a restaurant so she can better provide for her family.
“My family is all that I have left in this world. They have been with me through good and bad times. I am so happy to be given this chance to turn my life around and become a successful businesswoman one day,” she said.
