Ishmael Time

But Ishmael did not give up hope. His company's proactive policy on antiretroviral medicines gave him a chance for a new beginning — and he seized it.

He started taking his medication immediately and felt himself grow stronger again. "I started eating again. My weight had fallen from 70 kgs, to 39, and is now back up to 72 kg." With a smile he adds: "Let me warn you of my large appetite now."

To top it all, he drives for his company again — earning a living and contributing to his community.
