God’s Golden Acre
The inspirational story of one woman's fight for some of the world's most vulnerable AIDS orpans
In KwaZulu-Natal Heather Reynolds and her husband Patrick have established a community care centre for orphaned and abandoned children, where children find sanctuary from abuse, poverty, and starvation. The very sick die with dignity; but for those who survive Heather provides love, security, education, hope and a future. She has set up football leagues and a touring theatre and dance troupe. Braving local indifference and facing down opposition from neighbours and gang leaders, she has attracted dozens of volunteers to assist in her rescue mission. A one-woman force of nature, she has enlisted the support of such celebrities as Oprah Winfrey and Jude Law. Where did such courage and vision come from? This is Heather’s own astonishing story.
