A young girl stands next to her mothers bed on August 17, 2000 Izingolweni, a rural village in Southern Natal in South Africa. The mother is dying of an Aids related disease in her home. The girls will be taken care of by grandparents as no other relatives can care for the child. South Africa has one of the highest infection rates of HIV/Aids in the world.
