Empowering HIV+clients with services

By Hope Okeny | Project Leader

Scovia's story
Scovia's story

Dear Friends, I would like to share with you Scovia's story.

Scovia Akello 27, is a peasant farmer in the village of Laliya. She has three children of her own and 4 of her late brother.

Scovia is a member of the farmers group, she joined this group nearly six years ago and they meet monthly at the Karin clinics to discuss how to improve their work and support their families. 

Scovia lost her husband to HIV last year and since then, the whole burden of supporting her family lies solely with her. She is happy to be part of the farmers group because through this group she also gets to receive information about health from the health workers at the Karin clinic. She also takes her children to the Karin clinic.

“I am happy to be part of this group, we are partners with the Karin Community Initiative Uganda. I first came to the clinic to test for HIV and other STIs. We also receive their other services like family planning and cancer screening to people.” Our children also come for services like immunization and malaria treatment.

“The first time I came here I was warmly welcomed. They're very good at talking to the everyone, regardless of your status. Though the place was new for me, I was given service as if it was not my first time.” Says Scovia. “In this community we face several challenges. People around look at you as if you are not a human being and you cant do anything.”

Scovia has since been a regular client of the Karin clinic for HIV testing, cancer screening and other diseases. She says her status exposes her to many risks of infection which has to be regularly checked for.

“I always come here for testing, there is also cancer screening. They don’t segregate me because of my status. They give you the services you need.” 

We value the support that you give us to support people living with HIV/AIDS. We value your continued support and it is for this reason that we ask you to share our global giving page with your contacts and tell them why you decide to donate to us and why they should do the same.

 We also encourage you to sign up for a monthly recurring donation today. 

 

Thank you for your support!
