The joys and sorrows of a proud heritage are poignantly told by a woman born of Zambian royal heritage.
Zindaba “Zindie” Nyirenda was the granddaughter of traditional Zambian heritage. Raised in an elite and privileged environment in Zambia during the country’s booming economy, her life and outlook were bright. Zindie had the best during her formative years, studying at the only highest institution of learning in her beloved country. Then she moved to the United States and, over the next two decades, watched in horror as life in her country, as she knew it, rapidly disintegrated with the devastation and influx of the AIDS/HIV virus. Her friends and family were affected by the crumbling economy and suffered unimaginable tragedies as this magnificent paradise succumbed to a relentless virus and inconceivable poverty
Zindie’s heart wrenching tale takes the reader inside a world that most people will never experience. The face of AIDS becomes her own and she resolves to do anything and everything to commit her life to bettering life in her country and improving those who live there now. Losing her family members and friends, Zindie makes a pledge to herself and to God to save Africa—the continent that courses through her blood.
Read the incredible story of how one woman is fighting the fight of her life by founding an organization to raise AIDS awareness in her country and starting a factory to empower widows of the disease. Her story will move you, inspire you and remind you how it is up to each of us to stop the suffering of our fellow human beings and to instigate change for the betterment of all.
