Reclaiming Our Lives: HIV and AIDS, Women's Land and Property Rights, and Livelihoods in Southern and East Africa : Narratives and Responses
HSRC Press, 2006 - Social Science - 117 pages
The heavy impact of HIV and AIDS in South and East Africa is examined in this collection of narratives from the region which aim to raise awareness not only about the vulnerability of widows and orphans, but also about the active steps being taken by many grassroots organizations to respond to the crisis. While the pandemic is biting deeply into the social fabric of communities, it is also galvanizing ordinary women and men to respond with compassion and conviction and to find innovative ways of defending and promoting the rights of HIV-affected women and children. These stories expose the immense human cost of discriminatory laws and practices and point to the social, policy, and legislative changes that are necessary to combat the pandemic effectively.

"I got a hold of voodoo spellcasters,when I had some bad luck thrown my way. I had a consultation with the priest in charge. He casted the Ultimate Jinx & Evil Remover/Curse Killer Spell. My husband left me and I thought I needed the same spell again, but during the consultation the Priest told me to save the money, because he thought that spell wasn't needed again and for me to save my money from getting the same spell... He told me to get the Come To Me, Obstacle Breaker and Love Only Me Spells, with the portions and within 5days my husband returned and with that Love Only Me portion his love for me felt like the day we were married. I had the Miracle Money Spell X 3 (three times) and I came into a nice sum of money. I am so grateful for voodoos spellcasters, to enter my life. I made a video testimony for voodoo spellcasters look on the video section it should be posted: visit the email for similar troubles and get it solved in a moment (voodoospellcast@yahoo. com, Tel: +2347030759636...
