COVID_19 response in rural Uganda

We thank Donors who responded quickly when we reached out asking for donations to support rural HIV positives sexual minorities in Uganda

Two of our members have been hospitalized in Mbarara regional referral hospital for having not been taking their HIV medication which let their body and immunity to be so weak and we were worried that there might be even more similar cases because majority refused to take their daily medication on an empty stomach.

This came when the country- Uganda locked us all and advised us to stay home as a way of fighting COVID_19. Majority of the rural LGBTQ depend on daily income related jobs like working in saloons, bars, gathering events, some have been working on our cake baking project which were all put on hold, 

With your donations, we have been able to provide and offer  food  to LGBTQ HIV positives so that they continue taking their medication, we have delivered their HIV  medication throught the lockdown and when there were no public means allowed to move.

we are looking forward to issue a full report and we will share it. 

 

Stay safe
