AIDS Orphans in Kenya: a disturbing video report about the lives of Kenyan children forced to live on the street after their parents die of AIDS. The Kibera Slum where the disease spreads like fire and the incredible follow-up story, all submitted to raise awareness about poverty.

Thank you for posting this. I am sadder, but need reminding.

Oh my god, that change in Mike. This as a whole was incredibly sobering.

I can't watch video at work, but I saw a report about AIDS orphans several years ago and it just tore me up. There was a boy whose mother was extremely sick, and he was forced to work to feed his 2 younger siblings.

He was seven years old.
