"Mothering Across Continents"

I was born in South Africa and have lived in the USA for ten years. I have been connected with an Aids community care program called Woza Moya Project for some time and in July 2005 went out into the rural community of Ixopo with the Community Care workers. While there I was able to take photographs of some of the children I met. Many of these children are Aids Orphans or have to care for sick parents and younger siblings.

Late last year I connected with a group of like minded women and we formed a group called "Mothering Across Continents".

The vision of this group is to inspire women in the US to help the thousands of young children affected by the Aids epidemic in South Africa.
The photographs show two of the 12 foot collages I made for a fundraising event in Charlotte in May. Photographs by Photo Lyrical.
