More than a million people call her â€œAuntâ€ or â€œMamaâ€. Barbara Hofmann has lived in Mozambique for over twenty years. Her life in Switzerland, her native country, was completely different to the one she has today, with different dreams and projects, but she wasnâ€™t able to leave the children she met during her stay in Beira, in 1989. Orphans, victims of war and AIDS in need of food and shelter, medical assistance and possibly schooling, but more than anything, in need of love.
