A Six-year-old Chinese Outcast (15 pics)
Ah Long is a 6-year-old boy from China who has lost his parents to AIDS. He was born with HIV and even his 84-year-old grandmother doesn't want to live with him because she is afraid of getting sick. He lives in his parents’ shack in Guangxi Province, China, and receives monthly 70 yuan (about $10.50) from the government. Other villagers are also afraid of HIV and don't help the boy at all. His only friend is his dog.
