Abavana and I am living with AIDS.Ever since my husband, Hon. Lawrence R. Abavana, former Ghanaian Agriculture minister died of AIDS and I was tested positive of the AIDS virus, the mass media wouldn't just let me and my family be.
My children have stopped going to school because they could no longer
stand the humiliations from fellow students.The embarrassments are getting on my nerves but what can I do? I would have loved to travel out of the country to a place where I will have peace and spend the rest of my life with my children but I couldn't make it for I am weak and severely sick, Moreover, no Embassy would grant me Visa to her Country with my hairs withering and boils all over my body. I will like you to keep this top secret and Confidential.
