OneWorlders have chosen Kenyan AIDS caregiver Pamela Adoyo as one of their People of 2008. In addition to raising her seven children, Pamela manages 45 local women who are caregivers to the sick, checking regularly on 365 men and women in the area who are "down" with HIV/AIDS and the nearly 2,000 AIDS orphans and other children affected by the epidemic. Pamela and her women have also built an orphanage, which houses 20 girls and plans to take in its first group of boys soon.
Pamela is ready to answer your questions about her life and work and the impact of AIDS in Africa. Post your questions or comments below by Mar. 6 and we'll send them on to Pamela's son Patrick, a university student in Nairobi, who will take them out to Pamela in her village of Dago (six hours away by bus) and bring back her responses. (If you don't mind, please include your name and location with your post.) And click here to learn more about Pamela Adoyo and all the finalists for OneWorld's Person of the Year award.
