Using embroidery, beading and photography, South African villagers have given their AIDS-affected communities new life. As well as raising money for treatment, their art provides meaning for life.

Together with the Keiskamma Trust, the women of Hamburg, Natal, are making a real difference. Funds raised from their impressive tapestries provide treatment and aftercare for AIDS sufferers. Carol Hofmeyr runs the Trust on two principles: make their bodies better and give their lives meaning through art. We have saved a lot of peoples lives, says a South-African grandmother: it has saved my childrens lives as well.
