A man in India's southern Chennai city has adopted more than 45 HIV- positive children, who were abandoned by their families. Solomon Raj juggles three jobs to take care of his kids, a gruelling task especially when the kids are more vulnerable and face severe health complications due to their condition. The children all aged between three and 20 fondly call him 'appa', which translates to father.
