Patrick Chamusso | TEDxTokyo 2011
People call Patrick Chamusso the “Ordinary Man” because his philosophy is to embrace simplicity and leave more energy to devote to things bigger than himself. The South African activist fought past his country’s repressive apartheid regime—portrayed in the 2006 film Catch a Fire—only to confront an enemy even more brutal and pitiless: the AIDS virus. Through his South Africa-based NGO, a care center called Two Sisters, Patrick sheds light on the harsh reality children living with AIDS and without parents face. Patrick’s goal is to gather the necessary resources to support them, and persuade the global community to find ways to reduce their suffering. His ultimate dream is stem the global spread of AIDS, eliminate the disease altogether, and see a united world free of poverty, disease and destruction.
