Woo is that?

12 year old Woo spreads hope

A young girl with a big heart
Woo helps others face a life with HIV/Aids

Woo is 12  and HIV positive. "She is not afraid or ashamed to tell people about it,” says her mother Sue-Anne Cook, who adopted the then two-year-old after her mother and grandmother died.

Woo now goes around to schools spreading the message that being HIV positive is not a death sentence. She is in charge of her own medication; does a lot of cooking, loves sewing and is filled with life.

Woo gives antiretroviral workshops to children in schools and hospitals around Limpopo explaining the importance of taking their medication. She was even flown to Scotland to speak about the crippling effect of the virus.

Keep an eye out for the next edition of Ubuntu, wherein we feature Woo and her mom and the amazing work that they do.
