Summary

This project aims to support 5 elderly care givers looking after 20 HIV+ children. These households are both socially and economical vulnerable since the community pays less attention to their needs, yet they most often lack sources of livelihood. To make matters worse such caregivers have lost their children to HIV/AIDS! They are left with a burden of looking after orphans,(many of them are HIV positives). Caregivers in Lyantonde will be supported with clothes,bedings,utensils and small houses.

Challenge

The problem is, lack of basic needs leads to non adherence, which also leads to non viral load suppression due to poor health which results to more transmission of HIV.

Solution

Elderly with bad houses will access good houses lessening their risks to mosquitoes which expose them to malaria. The support will give them more hope and enable them to live positively with HIV.

Long-Term Impact

The support will help to live an improved standard of living. Sport will reduce risk to Malaria and water borne diseases. Improved economic productivity
