Building Resilience, Addressing Vulnerability

CHF's Higa Ubeho Program is building on our past success in providing assistance to orphans in Rwanda by continuing to work with them and other vulnerable populations. To date, * More than 170,000 people have been reached through HIV/AIDS prevention messages

* Nearly 40,000 orphans and vulnerable children have received health and nutrition education, clinical services, and school supplies and uniforms so that they can continue their education

* Over 26,500 people received palliative care services, including counseling, nutrition, home care and hospital-related support, and

* Over 1,000 child-headed households received vocational training and donations of basic necessities
