More Than Eyes Can See: A Nine Month Journey into the Aids Pandemic

by Rhidian Brook - £8.99  Marion Boyars Publishers Ltd (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780714531427 | ISBN 10: 0714531421

An extraordinary account of a nine-month journey made by the author and his family into some of the World’s HIV/AIDS epicentres.
Sent by the Salvation Army to bear witness to the work they were doing in response to the pandemic, Rhidian Brook, his wife and two children, follow a trail of devastation through communities still shattered and being broken by this disease: truck stop sex workers in Kenya, victims of rape in Rwanda, child-headed families in Soweto, children of prostitutes in India, farmers who sold blood for money in China.
It is a remarkable journey among the infected and the affected through a world that, despite seeming on the brink of collapse, is being held together, not by power, politics, guns and money; but by small acts of kindness performed by unsung people choosing to live in hope.
