Looking back at assignments that shaped our mission, one in particular really stands out. It was the late 90’s and we were shooting a feature about the AIDS epidemic in Kenya and it’s effect on families. We knew that the disease was devastating for women like Beatrice, pictured below, but what we learned during the assignment was the impact it had on the families of the dying as they struggled with not only the loss of the loved ones but also the burden of caring for their children. Often times grandparents found themselves caring for infants and numerous other children without the resources to do so and had to place them in orphanages thus creating another generation lost to the disease.
