Hope Alive Uganda (HAU) invited one of the representative called Mr. OPIYO TONNY and the Executive Director of SUPPORT THE ORPHANS AND VULNERABLE CHILDREN ORGANISATION (SOVCO) based in Gulu District, Northern Uganda who initiated and gave his sincere gratitude towards the activities carried out by Hope Alive Uganda (HAU) in Kamuli District in Uganda.
Amongst other individuals who attended, initiated and witnessed this activity included;
The Community Development Officer (CDO) for Kamuli District.
The Officer in Charge of Police for Kisozi sub-county.
The Chairman Local Council 3, Chairman Local Council 1 and our Volunteer Eric Ojok in place.
Purposely, these nets were issued out to these children just because HAU knows very well the bad impacts of malaria to the young generations of these kind and it is an active and preventive measure to malaria.

Edyy- that's terrific news. I am curious though- how did you get such cheap nets? I thought they cost more than that.

Thanks for the development work you are doing
I know what it means to get such a big number of nets to the local community.This will help a big number of to be malaria free and generally it will improve the health conditions of the local community.
Thanks to the people who gave support to Hope Alive Uganda

Hi Eddy and Esther

Well done :)

As there are many Ugandan villages (including some fairly close to you) who are looking for nets, it will be helpful if you are able to tell them where you got them from. I am sure it said here earlier that you managed to buy them for $2.50 each (although I can't find that information now!), so many would be interested as that is lower than the costs they have been given. I know that Paul Bulenzi in Jinja and Christopher Wamala in Masaka were looking for nets, and there are others.

Stanley Okurut, LR of Kapuwai http://www.nabuur.com/en/user/stanley-okurut/profile is in the process of setting up a Nabuur Group for Ugandan LRs, so once it is up and running that would be a great place for you to share this kind of information. Or you could contact some of the other LRs directly and pass on the information.

Thank you Mary.

There is place at the market in Jinja, just behind Paul Bulenzi's project, where we had a look in December about the nets. At that place, the nets were bought for quite a cheap price (the 2,50 dollars mentioned)and the nets are treated. Everyone in that area is connected with one another and they all have each other's phone number. Everyone knows everyone. So, I think it is a piece of cake for those in need of nets to get in touch with Eddy. I would suggest they give him a call about it.... For Christopher, it will be more difficult I guess, as Masaka is so far away from Jinja, but they might be able to work things out amongst each other.

Thanks Esther

As Paul and Eddy already know each other, I suspect that means that Paul already knows baout this, or Eddy can tell him next time they meet.

Yeah, Christopher is on the other side of the country but will mention it to him and suggest that he contacts Eddy just in case there is a way of working things out if he still needs nets.

Hopefully once Stanley gets that group up and running, Eddy can also post the basic info there for any new LRs in the area who don't know about it.

Dear neighbors, The seller is called Mawaizi, his phone number is +256 701 039 752 from Jinja.
Another issues of concern is that, if any one wants to buy uniforms at the cheaper prices you can go to the main street in Jinja, opposite Busoga FM.
I am going to be available always to help those in need of any information.Active as i am and as we all desereve to be in the network.
Thanks,
From Hope Alive Uganda
