HARARE, Zimbabwe, 25 October 2005 – “At times we have no food at home for lunch or supper. At times I avoid playing with those who have food at school, fearing they may think I am in need. I always feel this way.” Eleven-year-old Jane Mushaninga, who has been orphaned by AIDS, received rousing applause when she spoke at the Zimbabwean launch of UNITE FOR CHILDREN  UNITE AGAINST AIDS.

Guests at the launch were greeted by the song and dance of a children’s group, and also saw a music video tribute to Zimbabwe’s women and children.

All stayed for a most eclectic meal - Ambassadors served lunch to children, Ministers spoke with HIV-positive children, and donors blew up balloons and played with orphans.
