Swaziland x 2012

I went to Swaziland, Africa to do some photographic work for The Danish Bible Society.
The country has the highest HIV-rate in all of the world and I visited hospitals, schools, the vice president and different projects fighting against the HIV in the country. The Danish Bible Society supports a HIV-fighting project named "The Good Samaritan". Most of the children in these pictures come from families with HIV and AIDS and a number of the children are infected themselves. Here are some impressions.

  1. Så smukke billeder AG! Tak for tippet om at komme forbi din side - det skulle jeg jo have været for længst. Jeg beundrer din evne til at fange de personlige udtryk i menneskers ansigter og deres bevægelser/positioner

    To all HIV patients out there, Impossible situations is becoming possible miracles gradually, It might help you too. This medicine works perfectly for me. I suffered HIV for 5 years. I had no idea what was happening and didn’t know where to turn for help. It was hard then because I really didn’t understand the symptoms earlier until I was diagnosed. The anguish I went through taking care of myself alone is beyond explanation because there was no support of whatsoever from family members. I fought for proper medical care and humane treatment; I did everything within my reach to get cured but all to no avail. Countless different medications was prescribed antiretroviral therapy (Zidovudine, azidothymidine, Stavudine, Risperdal, quetiapine, etc.) that I was taking but all I could get was myriad of side effects such as rigidity, drowsiness, dizziness, tremors and restlessness which tends to worsen the already damaged situation. Frustration was the order of the day.

    At the foundation someone shared a testimony about herbal medicine, how effective it is and how she went through the most difficult times of her life trying to help her mom fight HIV. Being that I was already at the verge of giving up because I just couldn't imagine waking up every morning to fight the same thing that left me so tired the night before. I had to contact the doctor, from our conversation; I was relieved and convinced that the result is going to be positive because I was made to contact people with worse cases. Today, the awful situation has gone by. My happy life is back. I'm now HIV survivor and I am glad because my daily routine activities had now kick off without obstructions. Don't let HIV hinder you from living a desired life and also, never allow anyone decide for you especially when they don't know what you have to go through to get to where you are. I was almost discouraged by the doctor but then, I remembered that: I have to shield my destiny with courage, faith and perseverance my life is now a testimony. After I got cured, I said, Mom “I just thought, ‘Well, I’m a unconventional, I’ll never be normal, then she said, my daughter, life itself is a misery and we get stronger in the places we have been broken. Thanks to you Dr. Aparajita for your excellent counseling, no more HIV symptoms for the past 3 years and 2 months now.
