This film is in honor of World AIDS Orphans Day (May 7th, 2008). Over 15 million children worldwide have lost one or both parents to AIDS -- equivalent to the number of people living in New York, Paris, and Bangkok combined. In sub-Saharan Africa alone, over 12 million children have been orphaned by the pandemic.

In addition to the psychological trauma of losing a parent, orphans are often subject to discrimination and are less likely to receive healthcare, schooling and other needed services. Deprived of protection, education, support and love, they face malnutrition, illness and HIV infection and are easy prey to many forms of exploitation: forced labor, prostitution and child soldiering.

The Nyaka AIDS Orphans School in southwestern Uganda provides hope to 307 orphans. Learn more about Nyaka by visiting and the music on the video?

We're truly blessed.
