Wat Opot – Living with HIV/AIDS

A few nights ago, Wayne set up a big screen along with a projector and shared a few videos about Wat Opot and the face of HIV/AIDS in Cambodia.

If we take away one thing, it will be how normal children living with HIV are. Beautiful inside and out, there is no way to distinguish between those living with HIV and those who are not. Even when health fails, this strong community has an open and accepting relationship to death. Those who have passed are still a big part of this community. Gone, but never forgotten. Please check out Wayne’s blog, as well as a beautiful tribute to Jon Sochea (Lan Krome) who passed away at in April 2012.
