Two videos of Hayley speaking out about the missing face of AIDS - children - are available online on UNICEF's website.
It is possible that they were already posted on the forum but I'm not sure. The videos are new to me so I'll just post the links and if someone finds another similar topic, please let me know and I'll delete this thread.

I have not heard that this is to be Hayley's new project but I'm sure we will find out soon.
When we saw her in Newmarket (13th July 2006), she mentioned that her target for Bikes for Ghana had been met and that it would probably close in favour of a new project. At the time, the eradication of Guinea Worm was being considered. Nevertheless, Bikes for Ghana continued and we are awaiting confirmation of what her next project might be. These videos might be a clue!

I also heard that from various sources, yet a year on and "Bikes For Ghana" is still ongoing. It would be interesting to know if the original total has been changed and what the current total now stands at. It has obviously been a very worthwhile and well supported project.
To get back on topic, there has been quite a lot of publicity about the AIDS orphan crisis recently and is certainly one that warrants (and I'm sure will get) our wholehearted support.
In January 2007, Hayley attended a screening of a documentary tribute to UNICEF 'Wake up World' produced by Vanessa Redgrave, who became a Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF in 1993. It is possible that she heard about this AIDS orphans project during that day and was asked to do these ads.
Vanessa’s support continued with the production of a documentary tribute, ‘Wake Up World’, which commemorates 60 years of UNICEF’s work for children around the world. Directed by her son, Carlo Nero, ‘Wake Up World’ features exclusive interviews with Kofi Annan, UNICEF Executive Director Ann Veneman; UNICEF Ambassadors Ralph Fiennes, Angelique Kidjo and Liam Neeson and other key UNICEF staff and supporters.
