“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, often caring for younger siblings. 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.”
