Does it matter to anyone if there is one less of us? Does it matter if any of us live or die?
Foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu
There are over 15 million children orphaned by AIDS in the world – children whose lives have been devastated by the loss of their parents and the stigma associated with this modern-day plague. Kevin Sumba is one of these children. Living in a squalid shantytown in Kenya, his life was one of loneliness and hardship – it was a constant struggle for him to clothe and feed himself – yet he still courageously worked to get himself an education.
Miles Roston, a documentary filmmaker, first met Kevin while making a film on AIDS orphans. Miles had seen the heartbreaking reality of life for young AIDS victims firsthand many times, yet he found that this particular boy entered his heart in a way he hadn’t anticipated. So together, he and Kevin set about answering ‘Kevin’s Questions‘, a journey that took them around the world, from New York to Nairobi.
