Thailand | Living with HIV: Documenting the work of the Born To Live Charity

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

Thailand: Living with HIV: Documenting the work of the Born To Live Charity is a body of work documenting  a community of Thai children who were born with HIV. The BaanGerda Village provides homes for orphaned children living with HIV in the province of Lop Buri approximately 80 km north of the city of Lopburi and 240 km from Bangkok, central Thailand. Baan Gerda was set up by Karl Morsbach and his wife Tassanee six years ago. This project was generously sponsored by the recently the Born to Live Charity (based in Adelaide) founded by Father Sean Smith MSC and several international businessmen, whose donations have allowed an excellent facility to be built for the continuous care and support of these children.
