Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), a French organization also known as Doctors Without Borders, open a photo exhibition this weekend showing how HIV/AIDS patients in Kenya, and the medical professionals who care for them, cling to hope in desperate circumstances.

The exhibition, titled “Tumaini (HOPE) Inochio Tsunagu” will be held in Tokyo from April 19. “Tumaini” means “hope” in Swahili and inochio tsunagu means “connecting life” in Japanese. In the exhibition, 78 pictures of MSF activities to combat HIV/AIDS in Kenya will be displayed. German photographer Matthias Steinbach took the photos in 2006 and 2007.
