Lucky is a primary 4 student at Kutamba Primary School. He loves going to school and playing football with his friends. He dreams of being a lawyer someday. But Lucky is also HIV positive. Recently his condition has been getting much worse. His condition is continually changing and his family needs additional support to provide the care he needs. All funds given to this project will go directly to his medical care or the care of other children suffering from HIV/AIDS.
HIV/AIDS is a terrible illness that has taken millions of lives in Uganda. Many children lose their parents to the disease. Some children, like Lucky, get infected from their parents. This project will provide the treatment that will save Lucky's life.
The funds from this project will be used to pay treatment and transportation to the hospital for Lucky for one year.
There is no cure for HIV/AIDS but, with treatment, Lucky will be able to live a fuller, happier life.
