I'm still with you

I’m still with you

Uganda, 2010

It's hard to remember back to a world without Aids. For a long time the illness and its consequences, particularly for children, just were not understood. 

In Uganda, the number of orphaned and separated children is now so great that parents can no longer rely on community elders or extended family to supply the information and continuity of care that their children need. Inside the Memory Books, Africa’s mothers write down their families history, to make sure their children know where they come from and who they are. At the same time they are touching documents on how Africa’s parents take leave, how Aids is changing the culture of a country, and the importance of remembering.
