For Khumbu Shiba, who has been HIV-positive for three years, WFP’s food and nutrition assistance has meant all the difference. Before, she was barely able to care for her family, and felt very weak. Now, she has regained her health and has even started her own business.
SWAZILAND – Khumbu Shiba,* 60, has struggled with HIV for many years with little assistance from others.
In 2004, her husband died after having been sick for a long time. Although she did not know at the time that her husband had been HIV-positive, Mrs. Shiba herself was diagnosed with the virus in 2009.
