The Khechane family live in Mohale's Hoek, Lesotho. Mother, Marafelie, and father, Mohloni, are both living with HIV and are part of a support group for people who are HIV positive. When Marafelie was pregnant with their youngest child, Selebalo, she received prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) services, including counselling, advice and anti-retroviral medicine (ARVs). Selebalo was given a drop of ARVs shortly after birth and the process was successful: Selebalo tested HIV negative.
Photographer Gideon Mendel travelled to Lesotho in November 2007 and the resulting Lesotho Voices films, images and words tell the personal stories of several women there. The women are from different regions of the country, all are living with HIV. Some of them have benefited from PMTCT. Others have suffered without access to these vital services. http://www.unicef.org.uk/lesothovoice...
