In our community there are a high number of people living with HIV/AIDS as well as orphans who lack and need basic care. Because of this problem they suffer and die quickly.
VH-LAHA is planning to conduct a Home Basic Care Project. The aim of this project is to assist people living with HIV/AIDS as well as orphans that are lacking basic care by helping with things like meals, clothing, basic medical care, and education. Right now, our efforts are funded by financial contributions and donations from our members.
The project room is a space designated for providing general project information and updates as well as for asking general questions that may not fit into the designated tasks above.

Mosquito nets for Nabitende: share your experience of net distribution in Uganda, or help us raise money
Malaria is a problem in Nabitende so EFORDE wishes to provide mosquito nets to community members.
They would like to start by obtaining 100 nets to be distributed to children, mothers and the elderly.
Many organisations provide free or reduced-cost nets in Uganda but, because of the high level of need across the country and lack of information on application procedures, it is not easy for a community to be selected to receive these nets.
