SEND A MESSAGE OF SUPPORT TO CHILDREN
IN AIDS-AFFECTED FAMILIES
You’ll hear in the movie that children in AIDS-affected families often feel isolated and stigmatised. We are aiming to collect 5,000 messages of support, which children can read on this website and on facebook, to show them that there are people all over the world who do not stigmatise them.
WATCH THE MOVIE
The Young Carers project has interviewed 6000 children and 2600 caregivers in South Africa. The children who made this video are members of our Teen Advisory Group, who have advised our research since 2008. These are not the children's real names. The making of this film was approved by University Research Ethics Committees. All children and caregivers gave informed consent. Please contact the Young Carers research team if you have any questions.
