Grandmother struggles to care for Aids orphans in nation worst hit by the virus.

    South Africa has the largest population of people infected with HIV in the world and in many cases children of parents infected with the virus are left orphaned.

    It is then up to their extended family to care for them.

    Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa, reporting from the town of Khayelitsha, met a woman who is caring for 14 grandchildren after her own three children died from Aids.
