On assignment in Lesotho, I photographed and wrote a Case Study for the Irish Aid Annual Report 2009.

I travelled to the country's remote mountain districts to meet people who benefited from health services and food sustainability programmes funded by the Irish Government.

Matsoanelo Khasipe, who I met on that trip, was amazingly warm, welcoming and open to talking about living positively with HIV. You could see the incredibly positive effect programmes like this are having on people across Lesotho.
