This morning KCDO gratefully received direct assistance from the Rakai Health Sciences Program, an organization sponsored by Johns Hopkins University. Rakai has previously provided 5 years of HIV medicine and research for local KCDO children afflicted with HIV.
Bukenya Willy, Executive Director of KCDO, writes, “Am happy to inform you that Rakai Health Sciences Program has supported more women and child-headed families with income generating projects to ensure sustainability and family improvements in income levels.”
Bukenya Willy continues, “The support includes retail shop items, charcoal sellers, farm inputs like vegetable seedlings, herbicides, fertilizers, spray pump.”
“Watering cans were given to all HIV positive children so that they can help in the gardens.”
Receiving these gifts is both a great achievement and a great blessing. KCDO’s ongoing positive relationship with Rakai has helped secure this important assistance. These products will give women and children the ability to work to sustain their own families so that they can have independence and security.
