Mathew (47 years old) has been living with HIV/AIDS for the last 10 years. In 2022, Mathew abandoned drugs due to lack of food and has completely lost weight. When Voice for Humanity Uganda had the first contact with mathew, he was weighing about 35Kgs. Through our palliative care program, we supported mathew to establisg a vegetable backyard garden so he could sustainably produce his own vegetable for eating and some for selling. With the Tomato seeds provided to Mathew, he has been able to have adquate diet and was able to enrol back on ARVs. ''I now have enough food to eat and I even sell my tomatoes to get money''. I feel my body is strong now. I follow my medication regularly becuase I have food to eat before taking my medication.
Through the support of many friends and donors, we have been able to support patients with palliative care to engage in Backyard gardening which does not only provide them with food but also helps them to sell excess and get money. Working with care givers to provide a source of food and income is crucial in giving hope to palliative care patients and their care givers.
