Mother and Child

The bond between Mother and Child is that of unconditional Love - tenderness, patience, hope, joy
- a Love with no boundaries; no limits.

I wanted to use this image to convey the stark reality of AIDS - a deadly, heartbreaking disease which leaves many children without a parent, and many parents without their child.

The red ribbon is to bring awareness about the virus, in the hope that more lives can be saved and less hearts broken.
