This little girl just tested positive for HIV. The pandemic in Southern Africa is devastating in ways that aren't easily described. Just imagine this little girl multiplied by thousands. Thousands of children without parents, and thousands more with HIV themselves.

She will get medicine, and she'll be well taken care of, which is more than I can say for most of the HIV-positive children in the squatter camps in South Africa.

I'm here with a "Grannie Brigade," a set of older ladies who came here to love on kids as much as they can while they're here. I'm here for different reasons, but I'm grateful I get to travel with these amazing ladies.

We visited the beautiful Lighthouse Childrens Shelter this morning.

One day I will be part of the Grannie Brigade... and hopefully I am raising a generation of 'em!

That's wonderful, i'm happy to see you there, cause those kids need people as you around.
Reality could be really said in some places of the world. And for sure it's a gift the fact that all of we are able to do something. That's the beauty which can change things; this small and most important difference.
Thank you to be there :)

A really heart-warming picture. They are both enjoying this most precious moment as we will all do.
