Ruth Mamani

"Never leave a friend behind."

Hello,

My name is Ruth.  It is a great pleasure to have you here :)

I was born and raised in La Paz.  I am a single mother with three children.  The father of my children left me more than seven years ago. At first, it seemed as if my world would come to an end.  I learnt to knit many years ago and I am constantly learning new techniques.  My world also changed even more drastically when after a doctor' visit I learnt that I was HIV positive.   Anyhow, this didn't stop me from doing what I love most of all... crocheting that is!

My dream is to see my country develop and see my children achieve their dreams in life. 

Thanks for believing in me,

Ruth
