Food support from GlobalGiving has strengthened Rose's life that Rose is so impressed and thanks everyone enduring in supporting households affected with HIV/AIDS.

Rose was supported with 50 kilograms of maize flour during the time she was bed ridden struggling with effects of ARVs. This food pushed her with her children until it reached the time of harvesting. Rose said, “My children are okay and are currently in school, I am now able to do my domestic activities like digging, walking to the Health centre to pick my tablets because it is 5kilometres away from my home and also take the tablets normally since I have what to eat." Rose and her children are among the beneficiaries of the support AIDS affected households with food project supported by GlobalGiving.

Great thanks to GlobalGiving and its back donors for enabling RACOBAO reach all this far.

Evas greatly thanks all the global giving fundraisers who are keeping their life in existence.

Evas kyomukama, a beneficiary of the Empower 300 HIV positive women with goats in Uganda has sold off 2 goats and used the money to construct a toilet for her family. Evas has extremely succeeded in managing goats. Evas skills in managing goats has enabled her herd of goats to grow up to 13 goats. She has a family where there are two children on Anti Retroviral treatment (ARVS) and therefore, her expenses on health care are always high with limited sources on income.  In her words again,” Am happy that I have a toilet for my family. This has reduced on the ill health of my family members which used to affect my children s health due to poor hygiene caused by lack of a toilet.”

We greatly honour global giving and its back donors for supporting RACOBAO reach this far. Thank you very very much.
