An art project in the South African village of Hamburg, created by people affected by HIV, is now being exhibited in Johannesburg more than 15 years after it was completed.

The Keiskamma art project gathered together over 130 women to weave a story of their pain and loss – but also of hope for the future after being affected by HIV/AIDS in the early 2000s when it hit South Africa.

Nozeti Makhubalo is one of the artists involved in the giant tapestry. She detailed some of the hardships she faced to feed her family after her husband could no longer provide for them and how working on the artwork was a healing experience for her.
