14 years ago, Sibusiso was battling to stay alive because of illnesses associated with his HIV-positive status.

Fortunately, the Respite Unit at Hillcrest AIDS Centre in KwaZulu-Natal nursed him back to health, Briefly.co.za learned.

He is now 32 years old, full of life, and working as a taxi driver. He visited the Centre last week because, as he said, it's special to him.

The Centre posted a picture of Sibusiso on its Facebook page and shared his amazing story. The jovial taxi driver said:

This place is very special to me. I owe my life to this place, as I learnt the importance of looking after my health.
