Boston Globe Series Examines Lives of Three African Children, Including Swazi AIDS Orphan

November 23, 2004

In the last part of a three-day series examining the lives of three African children, the Boston Globe on Tuesday profiled Thandeka Motsa of Sibovu, Swaziland, who became the caretaker of her brother and sister last year after her mother died of AIDS-related causes and her father died in an accident. The United Nations estimates that 11 million children in sub-Saharan Africa have lost one or both parents to AIDS-related illnesses. That number is expected to double within six years, according to the Globe (Donnelly, Boston Globe, 11/23). The other two stories in the series, which also includes photographs, profile Odongo Ambrose, a Ugandan child who was kidnapped and forced to work as a soldier, and Bidemi Ademibo, who is part of a group of children in Nigeria who scrounge for food and cannot afford their school fees (Boston.com, 11/23). All of the articles are available online.
