Description

According to the UN; up to 40 million children in sub-Saharan Africa will be orphaned by the spread of the HIV/AIDS virus. Against such a staggering forecast stands this haunting yet defiantly hopeful and inspiring profile of undaunted compassion in action. Around two decades ago; Marion Cloete; with her husband and three daughters; left a prosperous and privileged life in the suburbs of Johannesburg to found Boikarabelo; an orphanage and school in rural South Africa dedicated to supporting children who are themselves infected with the virus or whose parents have perished from it. The village is now home to over 1000 people. The film portrays the day-to-day challenges of educating the children there and providing a stable and caring environment in which they can develop. Especially moving are Cloete's efforts to fortify the children by example against the unavoidable presence of death that pervades their lives. Recommended for both public and academic libraries. Bonus features include deleted scenes and celebrity PSAs.Robert A. Sica; Eastern Kentucky Univ. Lib.; Richmond Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
