The orphanage for Cambodian children with HIV was set up in 2003 with the goal to save the orphans from dying of AIDS. At that time the medical treatment of HIV was not accessible for poor population. The first house for thirty orphans who lost their parents due to AIDS and found themselves out in the street was established in Phnom Penh.The children receive permanent medical treatment from the doctors. Given the large number of abandoned HIV orphans the St. Elisabeth College gradually opened more and more houses of this type.
Photo story ,,House of Family” is full of ordinary, perhaps, even banal situations such as sleeping, playing games, studying or having fun at a birthday party.
Nothing special at a first glance. Only upon deeper examination of the photographs the observer starts to understand the underlying stories. They force you to think; think about how precious random moments such as child’s afternoon sleep, soccer game with friends or a birthday cake are.
