About Me

My name is Josephine Apio. Raised in a poverty and HIV/AIDS infested area, i grew up to witness great impoverishment and affliction in my community particularly among the elderly who didn’t have much care. For three years, I cared for an elderly woman, and on June 27th 2012, she fell deeply ill. In her last moments, she called for me, as she wanted to give me her last words. Unfortunately, I went into labor the same day. When i heard this elderly woman I so loved had died, my great attachment and this woman’s death gave me the necessary courage to begin to deeply & smartly work to help the elderly people in my community. I am ready to give them hope to live a joyful & positive life.
