Powered by Love is the untold story of AIDS in Africa. We thought we knew what was happening in Africa when the AIDS pandemic raged across the continent, sweeping away 35 million lives. But we never knew it the way this book reveals it, in the shockingly intimate voices of the grandmothers who save their orphaned grandchildren when no one else was left alive. Their voices will leap straight into your heart. Their unguarded faces, in portraits that glow with character, pain and humour, will captivate you. www.grandmotherscampaign.org
