Pain in My Heart

For the first post, I have put up a short version of the documentary Pain in My Heart by Zimbabwean journalist and broadcaster Hopewell Chin’ono. In the documentary he follows 2 people infected by HIV. One of them has access to anti retro virals drugs and other does not.

HIV/AIDS is something that has affected the lives of so many Zimbabweans. I don’t know if I have come across a Zimbabwe whose life has not been affected by the disease in the form of the death of a family member or friend.

    Thanks for the great job. I couldn’t hold tears back for the little one (the young girl) who shouldered the burden of looking after her mother and had to surfer bereavement.
    I wonder whether you have kept truck of her whereabouts. Is it possible for me to make a humble contribution towards her livelihood and education? If so, how do we do it?
    I will be grateful to be allowed the honour and privilege of soothing a hurting soul.

    Thanks for stopping by. The video is very touching and it is life for a number of people. I have kept track of what is happening to the little girl and will email you information on her progress and that of Peter (the guy in the video). The emails will also contain information on a trust that was setup to support the little girl. The world needs more people like you who are willing to contribute to such a cause. Any contribution no matter how big or small would be most appreciated by the recipients.
