synopsis

We are in Mutare, the third largest city in Zimbabwe and the place where Spanish NGO, PLAN, is implementing the Memory Book Project. The project is based on helping HIV-positive mothers to write their memories and messages for the future to their children, who they most probably won't see growing up.
The book helps mothers to talk about their illness and transmit their desires and fears, whilst helping their children understand that their assistance will be needed in the household chores and caring for their mother when she feels weak.
