"One of the most tragic and insidious costs of AIDS is the price paid by children, who lose parents, protection and opportunities for the future. These beautiful faces will remind you of children you love. And their stories show what's possible when we care enough to stand up for them." -- Helene D. Gayle MD, MPH, President and CEO, CARE USA
"Africa has been blessed and cursed to an extreme. Cursed like Job with disease, habitat destruction, colonial depredations and corrupt governments. Blessed with people of extraordinary resilience and strength. This book showcases both---the curse of HIV and the heartbreaking orphans it has created, and the blessing and inspiration of the children themselves and the heroes who try to save them. This is an immensely moving book." -- Robert Sapolsky, PhD, Professor of Biology, Neurology and Neurological Sciences at Stanford University and author of A Primate's Memoir.
The award winning book Face to Face: Children of the AIDS Crisis in Africa offers a moving portrayal of life in Africa in the shadow of HIV/AIDS. It combines photography and narrative to capture the hopes and joys, struggles and sorrows of orphaned children left to survive on their own. It pays homage to the care-giving grannies, the little-known heroes of Africa, who have kept families together as traditional social networks collapse. It also presents some of the special challenges faced by children who are living with HIV. Finally, the book profiles some of the activists -- the energetic people working at the grassroots level to help restore the well-being of thousands of children and families affected by the epidemic.
